Place Famous for Beautiful Cherry Blossoms at Entertainment District -Nakajima Park in Sapporo-
June 15th, 2017
Nakajima Park (中島公園) is nearby Susukino (すすきの) in Chuo ward, Sapporo city and was opend in 1886. It was chosen as one of “100 Most Popular Urban Parks in Japan (日本都市公園100選)” and is known as a park with rich nature at the downtown. There are Shobu Pond (菖蒲池), Japanese Garden (日本庭園), Hoheikan (豊平館) designed as a national important cultural property, Concert Hall Kitara, Astronomical Observatory, Hassoan (八窓庵), Kogumaza Puppet Theater (こども人形劇場こぐま座), Nakajima Sport Center (中島体育センター), Hokkaido Museum of Literature (北海道立文学館) and Nakajima Tennis Courts (中島公園庭球場) on the site, so many visitors come. About 400 Yezo Mountain Cherries (エゾヤマザクラ) are in full bloom in a spring, and cherry blossoms viewers crowd. In addition, cosplay photography sessions are often held, so you can enjoy the cherry blossoms and the cosplay players. The best time to see is from late April to early May. Admission free. I visted here in 7 May 2017 and almost the cherry blossoms were falling unfortunately. I want to see lined the cherry trees with full in blooming cherry blossoms next time.
