And they have a little poster showing what's in bloom and what section it's in. It's possible to walk around the whole garden and see everything. Don't miss the roses.

We were very underwhelmed with our visit to the Botanical Gardens. There are so many beautiful parks and gardens in Japan an this just didn’t compare to others we’ve been to.

These botanic gardens, which include an arboretum, natural woodland, and two small museums, are well worth a visit and make a pleasant morning or afternoon's walk.

Whenever we travel we love to see the local botanical gardens. This one was incredibly disappointing--it had nothing special. in fact, the nicest flowers were in a bed outside of the front gate. It cost a bit to get in for our large group and...More

A very relaxing garden with beautiful trees surrounding the pond. I notice that there are some koi fishes swimming freely in the pond. Another season of beautiful blooms with vibrant colours.

We spent about two hours here in the morning, an easy walk from our hotel in Sapporo. It was relaxing and enjoyable, with labels on the trees and plants and with a museum that focused largely on animals and birds rather than plants. Some interesting...More
