Maruyama Park, adjacent to a primeval forest, has long been a good cherry blossom viewing spot in Sapporo City. In 1875, the first 150 trees were planted alone the shrine walkway in commemoration of the early founders of Sapporo. In spring, many people flock this park to enjoy the long-awaited opportunities for outing and cherry-blossom viewing. The best time is from late April to mid-May.

The place offers many things to explore and enjoy. The park is beautiful and become flowering in the first week of May due to Cherry Blossom. I recommend this place to visit in May. During the golden week the park is allowed for open fire and Barbeque. There is a Zoo nearby also. I am posting some pics taken in May during the cherry blossom.

Staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming ! The animals looked beautiful and healthy. But for an animal lover like me, it is a little saddening to see all the animals cooped up in a small enclosure. Perhaps it was due to it being Winter. Many of the animals were pacing around, alone in an enclosure and seemingly bored out of their minds. Despite all that, i would recommend visiting the zoo with your family. Great place for the family !

nothing to compare with Tokyo’s cherry blossom but it is a nice walk in Sapporo. Lots of people dating in old customs... very cute!

Nice Park and shrine. Not a ton of cherry blossom trees but a decent number. Lots of people picnicking during the cherry blossoms.

I was told that this park is one of the main places for hanami. Compared to hanami places in Fukushima, Tokyo, Kobe, Fukuoka, this place is the least impressive.

There are much nicer places in Sapporo for hanami than this park.
