Asahiyama Memorial Park (Asahiyama Kinen Koen)

Free admission

Opened in 1970 to commemorate Sapporo’s centennial celebration, Asahiyama Memorial Park (Asahiyama Kinen Koen) sits on a hilltop on the western edge of the city, offering panoramic views of both Sapporo and the Ishikari Plain beyond it. On a clear day, it’s possible to see all the way to the Sea of Japan.

Surrounding the park’s lookout, located 451 feet (137.5 meters) above sea level, are a series of lawns and manicured gardens with a fountain, Chinese arbor, a couple of bridges and a children’s play area. A series of hiking trails run through the forested area at the rear of the park, and when the weather is nice, food and drink vendors set up shop, making it a popular spot for picnicking. In July, Asahiyama Memorial Park serves as the venue for the Sapporo Asahiyama Music Festival.
