Odori Park is located next to the Sapporo Tower and Government buildings. It is about a couple of blocks from the Susukino area and the Tanukikoji Shopping Street. Pole town underground shopping mall runs underneath it and provides a convenient way to access the snow festival without having to travel outside for the entire time.

Usually the park is just a place for teens and young children to idle, but during the Snow festival, it is a wonderful place filled with ice and snow art, 2D videos on 3D snow art, and good, hot food.

This is the park which hosts the Sapporo Winter Snow Festival. A massive amenity in a beautiful City. The home of the festival is a beautiful green space in this city, covering roughly five city blocks it commands a picturesque site unequalled. Regardless of the season of the year its extremely restful in a busy city.

The Sapporo Snow Fest is wonderful. It have lots of snow sculptures, this year main theme is Star Wars. This event is well organized with helpers around to guild the flow of people walking thru the park and between the traffic lights. The park is spacious (10 blocks) and clean.

The ice sculptures were 40 feet high, what a way to have a hot drink and go for a walk. Start at the tower, and walk to the end, then catch a bus back.

Visited in February for the Snow Festival. A huge park that spans like 12 blocks, very easy access to and around the park. This festival site should be visited at least once during the day and another time during the evening/night as the atmosphere changes with the coloured lights and projection images. If lucky, will also catch some performances at... More

I really love going to Odori Park. It has a great scenery and it's also a place where you can just sit and relax. But one of the things I look forward to are the events that happen at the Park. During each season theres like a 1-2 week long event. These events are fun and great because theres a... More
