Sapporo TV Tower
Sapporo TV Tower is a popular destination as it is a symbol of Sapporo. The panoramic view from the observation deck at 100 m high is absolutely incredible. It is especially a romantic view in the twilight hours when the city lights first begin to come on. Take a photo of this stunning scene for your fond remembrance of Sapporo.
The corn carts are a specialty of Odori Park. The vendors offer fresh local corn served off the carts. The corn is boiled or grilled right before your eyes, and it is so sweet and scrumptious! They have other delicious gourmet items such as the famous Hokkaido steamed potatoes served with butter.
Odori Park hosts a wide variety of seasonal events such as the Lilac Festival in the spring, Yosakoi Soran Festival and beer gardens in the summer, the Sapporo Autumn Fest in fall, and the Sapporo Snow Festival and White Illumination in the winter. The enormous masterpieces of show sculpture at the Sapporo Snow Festival are simply overwhelming.
