About Odori Park
In addition to the beautiful flowerbeds, lawns, and 92 kinds of trees with about 4,700 roots, Odori Park is familiar to visitors and citizens through the year with more than a few visitors and citizens through the lilac festival announcing the arrival of early summer, the Yosakoi Sulang Festival, the Snow Festival, and the white light decorations, etc.
In addition, the park celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011 based on the design of Yasuhira Nagaoka, a pioneer of modern parks.

Then enter the Chase Park area is full of “snow sculpture”, in the evening large “snow sculpture” will also be accompanied by light and sound show, light show is very dazzling, the pattern in the painting is like a living
In addition to ice sculptures and snow sculptures, there is also a tense and exciting figure speed skating show.
In addition to ice and snow, there was also hot food at the ice festival, and when checking out, UnionPay, Alipay, WeChat, you can use whatever you want, I wonder if we’re at the Sapporo branch of the temple fair.
Chase exhibition area from 2.5 to 2.12 to snow sculptures, the following is the official website of the ice festival http://www.snowfes.com/c/, ice festival every winter, you can refer to ha. I don’t know if we went deeper in or what the reason is, I think the Chase Park snow sculpture is quite boring, there are only a few performances, the performances are speaking Japanese and singing Japanese songs. There are also a bunch of food and gadgets for sale, but we had already eaten, so then we walked to the Thino exhibition area.
It is a green square with perfect green facilities. Especially in summer and autumn, the green grass and the flower beds with hundreds of flowers decorate Chase Park beautifully. The main plants here are 4,700 trees planted with 92 kinds of contracts such as lilac flowers, spring elms, and glossy-leaved beech trees. In addition, various types of festivals are regularly held here – Sapporo Snow Festival, Sapporo Lilac Festival, Yosakoi Fishermen’s Dance Festival, Sapporo Summer Festival, Sapporo Autumn Festival, Sapporo White Illumination, etc.
Sapporo’s landmark, the Sapporo TV Tower (Sapporo TV Tower). The tower doesn’t look special from close up, but it is very beautiful if you come to see it from a distance.
For me, Odori Park is more like a long green belt than a park. When you want to take a leisurely walk, you can walk around the green area, and when you want to shop or eat, you can walk to the various facilities next to the green area and do what you want to do. In Japan’s big cities, where life is fast-paced, this kind of place may be a good choice to slow down your busy pace and relax your body and mind. Overall, it’s quite beautiful!
