Travel Guide - Odori Park

InformationInformation

Odori Park is a 1.5-kilometer long and 65-meter wide park stretching from east to west in the city center of Sapporo. There are fountains, flowerbeds, and monuments including "Black Slide Mantra" created by Isamu Noguchi in the park, and it is a year-round oasis for the local citizens. At the eastern end of the park is a Sapporo TV tower, while at the western end stands Sapporo City Archives Museum.
From late-April to late-October, you can find stalls that sell the Sapporo's specialty "Tokibi" roasted corn. The Sapporo Snow Festival held in the park early in February every year, turning the park into a wonderland featuring hundreds of snow and ice sculptures made by volunteers and amateur artists.
