The Sapporo Flower Carpet is a special three day event in Sapporo, Hokkaido based on the Flower Carpet biennial event in Brussels, Belgium. Held in Sapporo since 2014, each year brings over five hundred volunteers to decorate the paved brick road in front of the Former Hokkaido Government Building. The event is typically held in June and covers 30 meters of road in beautiful flower petals. The scenery is enhanced with illuminations by hundreds of electric candles during the night which is perfect for photo-taking. The illuminations create a spectacular visual of colors bouncing off another with the fresh aroma of the flower petals in the air. While Japan is no stranger to flower festivals, the Sapporo Flower Carpet is on another level of detail and art.
The Sapporo Flower Carpet Event is meant to bring together the community and to enjoy the beauty of nature. Many of the flowers arranged on the carpet feature unique silhouettes and shapes to add to the fun. Because Hokkaido experiences much cooler seasons than the rest of Japan, there is only a limited time to enjoy the flowers. Rather than getting excited over the famous Japanese cherry blossoms growing south of Hokkaido in the Spring, the residents of the northern island found a way to appreciate Japanese flowers and nature in their own unique way.
Using the open space and relaxing atmosphere at Odori Park, the Carpet Event is able to bring as many local and foreign visitors alike to enjoy the fresh Japanese flowers. The Carpet Event makes the most of the milder summer season with beautiful petals of pink, white, red, yellow, and more in the city of Sapporo.
Held just outside the former Red Brick Government office, the Sapporo Flower Carpet Japanese festival event should be on the top of your travel bucket-list while on a Hokkaido Tour. Ask your travel agent about adding the flower festival to your vacation with Japan Deluxe Tour's affordable custom private vacation packages available for Summer and Winter tours.
