Park in the Heart of Sapporo

Odori Park is located in the center of Sapporo and stretches east to west, dividing the city into northern and southern sections. Odori means large street in Japanese and is fitting for this park that was originally supposed to be a street. There are many events held at the street in addition to prominent landmarks, including the famous Sapporo TV Tower. One of the most popular events in the winter is the Sapporo Snow Festival, where extravagant sculptures are made in an epic competition. The winter also popular thanks to the White Illumination event that lights the trees with bright, colorful lights. In addition to winter events, there is the Lilac Festival in the Spring, a dance festival in June, and a beer garden in the summer. The end of summer includes the annual Hokkaido Marathon and the popular Autumn Festival. This expansive park draws in massive crowds during the festivals, but is enjoyed year round by the residents of Sapporo. If you plan on going to Sapporo, we recommend a day trip to Odori Park after your Japan tour!
