What you'll do

With your host to show you how locals like to celebrate, you’ll go on an experience of some of Sapporo’s loveliest sakura spots. With drinks and snacks from a konbini convenience store, sit down under the blooming boughs of 2,600 cherry blossom trees in Moerenuma Park’s ‘Cherry Blossom Forest’ for your very own hanami (cherry blossom viewing) picnic, move between the city’s bustling central parks, each with their own gorgeous groves of blossoms, or get off the beaten track towards Nakanosawa – a street that transforms into a fairytale tunnel of pink petals. And don’t worry about missing the season! In northern Hokkaido – the last place to warm up springtime – the iconic flowers bloom well into May!

Where you’ll go

In central Sapporo, there’s no lack of stunning locations to celebrate the festive but fleeting sakura season. You might start in Ōdōri Park, the central strip of green separating the city’s northern and southern halves, where scattered cherry blossom trees dot the lawns, then head a few blocks south to Nakajima Park, where you could rent a boat and cruise through a pink blanket of fallen petals on Iris Pond. Maruyama Park three miles west attracts some of the city’s biggest crowds for hanami picnics (and you can sneak in some sightseeing as you walk the tree-lined path to Hokkaido Shrine), while the massive Moerenuma Park in the city’s northeastern outskirts is well worth the trip for its magnificent “Cherry Blossom Forest”.

    • Celebrate cherry blossom season in Sapporo with a local host to guide you to the best locations
