This botanical garden (kCwA, Hokkaidō Daigaku Shokubutsuen) close to Sapporo's city center belongs to Hokkaido University and primarily serves a scientific and educational purpose. The garden with its walking trails and lawns, however, is also a pleasant place to take a break or to have a (non-alcoholic) picnic.

Established in 1886, the Botanic Garden preserves a small part of the forest which formerly covered the Ishikari Plain. In addition, there is an alpine garden, a greenhouse and a small Ainu museum. During the winter, only the greenhouse is open to the public.

Getting there and around

The Botanic Garden is a ten minute walk southwest of Sapporo Station or a five minute walk north of Nishi-Juitchome Station on the Tozai Subway Line.

Address: North 2, West 8
