Hokkaido Jingu Shrine/Maruyama Park

北海道神宮/円山公園

Great nature inside a town

Culture, Sights, Spring

Hokkaido Jingu is a shrine familiar to many people in Hokkaido and sees the most visitors in the prefecture. It is also a famous spot to view the cherry blossoms, with many people coming for that purpose from late April to early May, when the cherry blossoms and plum flowers bloom. It’s worth it to get a look at the cherry blossoms against the solemn shrine background.

What’s more, visitors can also use fire in Maruyama Park during just the cherry blossom season, so this is when the park becomes really bustling with people enjoying foods like Jingisukan (“Genghis Khan”), which is a dish loved by the people of Hokkaido as Hokkaido local cuisine.
