Gelateria Sorriso (ジェラッテリア ソッリーゾ) is a popular Italian gelato shop founded in 2013 in Yonchome Plaza, Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and is near Odori Park. The Sorriso means "Smiling" in Italian language, so I guess that their owner want everyone to smill, and the shop is named. Their patissier trained his cooking skill in Rome, so customers can enjoy a genuine gelato in the Sapporo. A place for customers to enjoy gelatos and benches are provided, too. Lico Lico in Shinshinotsu Onsen is a sister gelato shop.
Odori Park (大通公園) is in the very center of Sapporo city, and is located between Sapporo Station and Susukino. Offices and commercial facilities are built around the park, and it is just at very center of the big city. But 92 types 4,700 trees such as lilac, Japanese elm and cherry tree are planted, and fountains and flower beds are built, so the park is well-known as a place of relief for Sapporo citizens as well as tourists. The park has been chosen as one of The 100 Best Roads in Japan (日本の道100選), Japanese City Park Best 100 (日本の都市公園100選), The 100 Best Townscapes (都市景観100選) and Japan's Top 100 Historical Parks (日本の歴史公園100選), so it is one of the most famous parks in Japan.

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
I visited here around 14:00 on a weekday. No one ate gelato at that time. But a lot of customers came successively while eating my gelatos. This shop was ppopular after all. A scoop, 2 scoops and 3 scoops are served, and I ordered 3 scoops. The price was JPY 550. By the way, the price of a scoop was JPY 390 and the price of 2 scoops was JPY 470. Customers can taste it.
As for the 3 scoops, customers can choose 3 types of gelatos among about 22 types of the gelatos. I supposed that types of the gelatos were changed depending on seasons. I chose Super Vanilla Gelato (超バニラ), Strawberry "Kentaro" produced in Hokkaido Gelato (道産いちごけんたろう) and Sweet Summer Orange Gelato (甘夏フロマージュ) recommended by a shop staff. The shop staff was cheerful, and I had a fun conversation with her.
Vanilla beans produced in Madagascar was used in the Super Vanilla Gelato. This gelato used more vanilla beans than ordenary vanilla, and had a good flavor. The strawberry gelato used fresh strawberries harvested early in the morning in Shishinotsu, and tasted sour. The sweet summer orange gelato reminded me of summer. My favorite was the strawberry gelato in particular. That was very tasty! The gelatos were lightly sweetened on the whole, and made use of the taste of material. Thanks for the tasty gelato!
