Maruyama Park (Sapporo)3.3
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.

Shinto Shrine and tallest Pine trees.... great combination at any season to enjoy best photos. The tradition and culture speaks by itself when you walk trough the dark alleys of beautiful pine trees here... calm and peaceful.... be here and you will know how it feel

Went for a walk here on the wooded path (it's the path to the zoo).
Very calm and relaxing. On the soil path that run parallel to the wooded plank path, yoy might be able to see some squirrels.

I went to Hokkaido Shrine in Maruyama Park.
They prays for pioneer from all over Japan before 200 years ago.
Sacrid place. Sometimes having traditional wedding ceremony.

Take the bus, this zoo is at the top of a hill. Foreigners may need their passport to get in? (I didn't need it, but another American I spoke to said she did.) The animals all seem to be well cared for and chill. I wish they had capybaras, but their red panda exhibit was phenomenal.

Very beautiful. We enjoyed viewing cherry blossoms in spring. Can easily visit park as well as several nearby shrines and Maruyama zoo in one day.
