“Small but very nice”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

Hokkaido University Botanic Garden is near Keio Plaza Hotel where we stayed. Once we decided to came there and did not regretted. There are many kinds of flora in limited space. We liked little museum that is in the garden territory. I recommend to come there in hot summer day. But remember that garden is closed after 4 pm.

“Like the University campus, do not visit in winter.”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

We read about the wide variety of flora there during the non-winter months, was there at the wrong time. Within walking distance from Saporro JR station.
