Hello Explorers, how are you! Here is a list of some spots you should consider for your Hanami party in Sapporo!
Maruyama Park is one of the most popular spots for Hanami in Sapporo.
Pros: Close to Sapporo, BBQ is allowed, toilets and garbage stations.
Cons: A lot of people, very noisy, a lot of heavy drinkers and crows.
Odori Park is located right in the middle of downtown Sapporo.
Pros: Accessibility, close to shops, different kinds of Sakura trees.
Cons: Very busy, not many places to sit near trees, BBQ not allowed.
A personal favourite of mine is Yayoi Park, located close to Kikusui station. The park has a few wonderful trees. It’s also quiet!
Pros: Quiet, close to transport and shops.
Cons: Not so many trees, BBQ not allowed.
Moerenuma Park doesn’t just offer a beautiful Sakura forrest, but the park was designed by a famous architect. It’s full of cool stuff to check out.
Pros: Very big, a lot of trees, other things to see.
Cons: Difficult to get to, BBQ not allowed, not near shops.
Another cool thing to think about is having a Hanami party at night! Yozakura others a unique way of enjoying the Cherry Blossoms.
Odori Park is a good place to try.
