Odori Park is located just a few minutes walk from Sapporo Clock Tower. We didn't really do much except walk around in the snow-covered paths.

Night time viewing was well worth the cold weather (well it was winter...!!). The lights were simply stunning and at least twice each evening the lights are all turned off - plunging the park into almost complete darkness - and then with a countdown is held and the park is re-illuminated. There was a photo shoot with some kawaii-style J-Pop... More

We were there on 28th Feb and walked pass the area 2nd March. Not a good time to be there as they were clearing the snow and whatever that were there. Nothing there at all except some snow and bare trees. Wrong timing I guess.

The park looks lovely esp during winter. Various vendors sell local goods and food in the park at night in gingerbread- house-style stores. Clean and well-maintained.

Well worth visiting. We were in Harbin the previous week so it was interesting to also visit this smaller festival. Surprised how commercialised Sapporo's version was. As it is only set up for about 1 week I know that they have to cover costs. You need ice grippers on your boots to safely walk around on the ice.

I'm glad I didn't travel far to see the Sapporo Snow Festival as I am working in Sapporo. I saw one in Makomanai (Sapporo suburb) years ago and this one was appalling in comparison. Why? • the long narrow park and sculptures are dominated by hideous office blocks. • the sculptures all faced the tower so when you eventually walk... More

Snow was all we saw when we went to the park. There was a German theme fair selling stuff and food. But was just fun playing snow with my kids.
