Sapporo Botanical Garden

The perfect place for a summer stroll in Sapporo

By Mandy Bartok   Aug 3, 2013

Sapporo in the summertime is a delight to stroll around, but nowhere is more pleasant to walk than the quiet paths of the Hokkaido Botanical Garden. From the Canadian rock garden and the rose trellises to the stately groves of trees and the plot of native plants used by the Ainu, this is the place to enjoy Hokkaido's native flora at its finest.

This place looks peaceful. I am a gardening novice, but I am unclear what the Canadian rock garden is. Is this a style or rock garden, a donation from Canada, or something else?

Apparently, it was opened in 2001 to commemorate the partnership between the Sapporo Botanical Garden (managed by Hokkaido University) and the botanical garden at the University of British Columbia. There are about 150 species of plants from North America in it.
