We were there during winter so can't talk much about the floral. Beautiful tall trees n beware of big crows snatching your food if you eating there in the open. There is a nice cafe 六花亭 do try the fried mochi, is super yummy 110 yen each. I don't see it selling elsewhere beside here. Free hot tea available n sure is a blessing on a cold day. Nice walk to the Zoo.

I went in the winter and it was absolutely beautiful. There is a system of shrines and a sports area where you can ski or skate. Also, wasn't crowded despite being a busy season.

Beautiful place, close to the city and full of real nature. It is close to the Hokkaido Shrine, but it is surrounded by forests and beautiful trails to walk around and enjoy. It is one of the best places to appreciate the four seasons and their effects. Check it out on autumn and spring, you won’t be disappointed.

A nice walk between the shrines to the temple. Relaxing walk through the primeval forest to the Zoo. A small but enjoyable walk round the zoo. There is a view of sapporo from the polar bear enclosure. Glad we went. A walk from Sapporo city but got to see more than if we used a taxi
