[Cherry-Trees-Lined Path along Shinkawa River in Sapporo] Good Place to See Cherry Blossoms Is Loved by Local People

Cherry‐Trees‐Lined Path along Shinkawa River

Cherry‐Trees‐Lined Path along Shinkawa River (新川桜並木) is a good place to see cherry blossoms in Kita ward and Teine ward, Sapporo city. Yoshino cherry trees and Yezo mountain cherry trees are planted on a bank of about 10.5 km length between Shinkawa River (新川) or Kotoni River (琴似川) and Shikawa Street (新川通り), and it is known as the longest cherry‐trees‐lined path in Hokkaido. About 800 cherry trees are planted along walks of about 7.5 km at the Kita ward side, and that place is close to Hokkaido University (北海道大学) and Hokkaido Musashi Women's Junior College (北海道武蔵女子短期大学). At the Teine ward side, about 300 cherry trees are planted along walks of about 3 km length, and that is close to Maeda Forest Park (前田森林公園). Cherry blossoms are in full bloom about from late April to early May. Admission free. A parking lot is not provided.

Hokkaido University

The Hokkaido University is a national university in Kita ward, Sapporo city, and is close to the Sapporo Station. Its common name is Hokudai (ほくだい). Its antecedent is Sapporo Agricultural College (札幌農学校). Dr. Clark, one of founders, and his words Boys be ambitious become well-known. The area is 1.77 million m2 in the center of the Sapporo, and the site looks like a national park with a lot of huge trees. A part of university grounds are open to the public, and visitors can look around. Central Lawn (中央ローン), Bust of Dr. Clark (クラーク博士の胸像), Elm Grove (エルムの森), Hokkaido University Museum (北海道大学総合博物館), Monument in Honor of Dr. Inazo Nitobe (新渡戸稲造博士顕彰碑), Ono Pond (大野池), Poplar Trees Lined Path (ポプラ並木) and Ginko Trees Lined Road (イチョウ並木) are famous. The university grounds are a long site that extends north to south, and stretches 4 subway stations, Subway Nanboku Line "Sapporo Station", Subway Nanboku Line "Kita-12jo Station", Subway Nanboku Line "Kita-18jo Station" and Subway Nanboku Line "Kita-24jo Station". In case of walking, I suppose that it takes 30-120 minutes on foot. Cherry blossoms can be enjoyed in a spring, and fresh green plants can be enjoyed in a summer, and fall foliage can be enjoyed in an autumn, and snow views can be enjoyed in a winter. Especially, in the summer, tourists can feel an idyllic impression in a scenery of green plants, the blue sky and school buildings. Read More

SAPPORO

Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Read More

Cherry Blossoms of Hokkaido

Cherry blossoms begin to bloom from late April in Hokkaido. The cherry blossoms in the Southern Hokkaido including Hakodate begin to bloom from late April, and in case of late blooming, the cherry blossoms in the Eastern Hokkaido and the Northern Hokkaido seem to bloom in early June. The cherry blossoms in Honshu (the main island of Japan) begin to bloom from mid March, and tourists can enjoy the cherry blossoms until too late season. If everybody forget to see the cherry blossoms in the Honshu, please visit the Hokkaido to savor the cherry blossoms. Read More

Views of Cherry‐Trees‐Lined Path along Shinkawa River

I visited the cherry‐trees‐lined path of about 400 m length along the Kotoni River at the Kita ward side on May 3, 2019. All cherry trees did not bloom at same time, and were in full bloom at some parts of the cherry‐tree‐lined path. But some cherry tree tunnels were fomed here and there, so I enjoyed views of cherry blossoms. A lot of local people came, and enjoyed themselves as they like.

By the way, Club Tourism (クラブツーリズム), a Japanese tour travel agency, provides various types of tours such as day trip tours or ordinary tours. In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol. Choosen tourist attractions are national parks such as Rishiri and Rebun, Shiretoko, and popular tourist places such as Furano and Biei, and some activities such as hiking and fruit picking are also enjoyed depending on seasons. If you are interested in tour trips, you should visit the club tourism's website for details.
