Odori Park Reviews
삿포로 중심가 한복판에 있는 큰 공원입니다. 동쪽 TV타워부터 삿로포시자료관까지 이어진 공원이라서 처음부터 끝까지 걸어가려면 20분정도 소요되는 거리입니다. 하지만 막상 걸어보면 시간이 더 오래 걸립니다. 그 이유는 중간중간 분수도 있고 꽃밭도 있고 조형물도 있고 이것저것 볼거리가 많아서 구경하다보면 시간가는줄 모릅니다. 일본분들도 공원에 앉아 여유롭게 시... more »This is a big park in the heart of central Sapporo. The park is a 20-minute walk from start to finish, as it is a park that runs from the East TV Tower to the Sapporo Museum. But it takes longer to walk. The reason for this is that there is a fountain in the middle, there is a flower garden, there are sculptures, and there are many things to see, so it's going to take some time to see. Many Japanese people sit in the park and spend some time relaxing, and many parents came with their children. The atmosphere of the park is so nice, located between the buildings and the forest in the clear air without fine dust. I used to have a cup of coffee here every time I passed by. If you have time, we recommend you sit back and relax in the park.
さずかに365日という訳ではありませんが、年間を通して何かしらのイベント(雪まつり、よさこい祭り、等)の会場として使用されています。夏季には日本最大級のビアガーデンが開催されます。 この公園では食べ物に事欠かないせいか、大きな鳩をよく見かけます。鳩は愛嬌がありますが、カラスは少々攻撃的なので注意して下さい。屋台が並ぶイベントでは、カラスがあなたの食べ物を強奪しようと狙っています。 more »It is not 365 days, but it is used as a venue for some events (snow festival, Yosakoi festival, etc.) throughout the year. During the summer months, one of the largest beer gardens in Japan is held. I often see big pigeons in this park, probably because there is no shortage of food. Doves are charming, but crows are a little aggressive, so be careful. At the event of a street stand, crows are trying to steal your food.
The Sapporo ice festival was a great experience as the ice sculptures are well crafted and there are plenty of street food. There are buildings every now and then where you can warm yourself. A great trip even when it's cold outside!
During winter , Odori park is one of locations for Sapporo Snow Festival. If you are in Japan during this time do not even think to skip it! It is awesome! Lots and lots of non trivial snow sculptures, some times tall as 3-4 stories. Worth time and money. There are numerous places serving nice Japanese snack food (mostly hot) and drinks such as Hot Mojito - yes, it is hot as tea and taste really good.
