10 min walk Mauryama koen.
Take walk to the shrine.
cherry blossoms, and food stalls, plenty to eat, build a appetite and breath in that fresh air.
Yummy takoyaki in the stalls.
half hour to hike up mount mauryama.
Fresh mountain air good for the body, and good view from the top.
yakisoba, doriyaki, Okonimiyaki, (food stalls for all of this)
There's also Maruyama zoo, one can go to.

Plenty of pretty tree blossoms to take a photos of.

I went there in February and it was completely covered by snow. Such a magic walk!

At one of the entrances there is an information center with maps and workshops for children to learn how to discover the animal species in the park.
Walking walking you'll find the big Hokkaido Shrine and other smaller but absolutely lovely shrines. The atmosphere here is so spiritual and made me feel closer to the nature.

There is also a "wild" part of Maruyama park, with a sort of mountain inhabited by countless Buddha statues.

Such magic place, seriously :)


Sono stata qui a Febbraio ed era completamente sommerso dalle neve. Una camminata magica!

Ad una delle entrate c'è un centro informazioni con mappe e workshops per bambini per imparare come riconoscere le specie animali presenti nel parco.
Camminando camminando, troverete il grande Hokkaido shrine e altri santuari più piccoli ma deliziosi. L'atmosfera qui è molto spirituale e mi ha fatto sentire più vicina alla natura.
C'è anche una parte più selvaggia del parco, con una sorta di montagna tempestata da innumerevoli statuine di Buddha.

Che posto magico, davvero!
