I visited Maruyama Park during February and there was so much snow here. I mainly came to see the temples and pine trees blanketed in snow and it did not disappoint. The paths for the most part were clear but you still walk on snow, so come prepared. There were many people here enjoying the various snow activities. Me, I just enjoyed the Winter Wonderland. I believe this park is beautiful any time of year, but glad I came during the winter.

Maruyama Park is easily accessible from the nearest subway station;- Maruyama Koen (Station T06 on the Tozai Subway Line). Visiting the Hokkaido Jingu Shinto Shrine in January, I decided to trek through the Park itself on the way back from the Shrine, but it was a little difficult getting ones bearings when everything looks the same blanketed in snow. Hardly surprising therefore that after wandering through this winter wonderland, and too many left turns, I ended up back where I started at the 2nd Shrine Gate.

It was really an excellent surprise that I could still catch some really beautiful cherry blossom here in May.
The Hokkaido Jingu was closed when I visited the park in late afternoon. But it was still a very pleasant walk to the Jingu main gate.
Some amazing tulips in the park as well.

I went to see the cherry blossoms so I did not explore the rest of the park like I should have. A pleasant walk trails are well marked. There were a lot people in and around the temple so I avoided that area. I will return when it’s not so crowded to see more of the park maybe this summer.

I went to Sapporo for the snow and was glad that the whole park is covered with it :)
Nothing but white...wonderful.

On top of that, during our visit there's not too many people around. Making it almost magical for us!

I'd say this is a must go, especially when getting there is that easy via subway.

This might not be a specific attraction you would add into the itinerary but is surely an en route passage to the Hokkaido Shrine that should not be missed.

I was there just last week and there was snow everywhere. My daughter and I were enchanted by its tranqulity and serenity. The cool crisp air and the pure white snow laden park seemed to have wrapped us up in a time warp we lingered a little too long snapping pictures and be ourselves and be there. This might sound a little exaggerating but for one who grew up and have been living in a predominantly concrete island, its no wonder that I should regard such nature wonder with awe.

My only disclaimer is that you need to share my passion for winter (as my nickname suggests) and all nice and good things relating to winter in order to appreciate it the way I do. Otherwise, it would be what my other half thinks: "... it's nice but nothing to shout about ... it's just a park, another shrine and another zoo ... " grrrr ...

Anyway, we did the Maruyama Park-Shrine-Zoo in the morning, had lunch, and thereafter headed for the Shiroi Koibito Park near Miyanosawa Station which is a totally different kind of park.

It's three stops from Odori to Maruyama Subway via the yellow Tozai line and the Park is within a short walking distance.

Miyanosawa is only 5 stations from Maruyama Koen Station along the same subway line so it's logistically very convenient and not too difficult to navigate.

By the way, I've also written my reviews on the Hokkaido Shrine and the Shiroi Koibito Park which you may wish to read in case you might find them useful.

This is a big park and beautiful in winter. I am sure it is equally beautiful in summer. While I did not visit the Zoo, I visited the Hokkaido Shrine which visitors should not miss.

We went to the park on our way to the shrine on a Sunday. Lovely place that isn't too crowded and you get lovely view of the snowy landscape. There were people jogging, taking their dogs for a walk and children playing in the snow. It's about a 10 minute walk from the Maruyama station and it's pretty easy to locate. There are toilets located only at the front of the park though. If you like nature and parks, this is a lovely place to spend two hours of your time.

My 1st Self-drive (F&E) tour. My 1st visit to Japan.

We went to Maruyama Park for a morning walk. You can choose to cut through this park where you are visiting Maruyama Zoo and Hokkaido Shine. This is a nice park during this season. We saw lots of little children dancing in the park.
