Continued my trip in Hokkaido, after my first post of Christmas festival in Hakodate, we went to visit the second Christmas festival in Sapporo. It is situated in Odori Park, which is in front of clock tower. (I took the above shot from there) It is amazingly huge and there are lots of different food counters, gifts counters and a live band as well. It was known as a Munich Christmas Festival in Sapporo. Also don’t miss out the Christmas tree and the heart shape Christmas wheel in font! It is the best photo shoot spot!
The environment is full of Christmas vibes with such a huge Christmas tree in the middle. Unlike the normal Christmas tree, it was decorated with thousands of little light bulbs. Sure you can see it from very far away. There’s also a Santa photo corner in front of the Christmas tree. It’s a great spot to have a shot with Santa! It’s such a pity that I didn’t have a chance to take a shot as there’re lots of people. I took a video showed how great it was!
Please see below video of the environment, sorry guys it is in Cantonese but what I want to show you is the Big Christmas tree at the back and also Santa corner at front!
There are 4 isles in the Christmas festival and it was full of different Christmas gifting counters from different countries. They have handcrafts such as Russian wooden dolls, Laser cut Snowman in lace, Handcrafted lantern and little wooden houses etc. All these were so lovely for gifting, it would be a great to buy some Christmas gifts for your beloved one. Besides, there are also some snacks counter of Sapporo if you are looking for Sapporo souvenir.
Apart from the gifting counters, there’re also food counters. There are different kinds of food such as pastas, hot dog, soup and sausages. Beverages include Tea, coffee and Hot chocolates. There a few high tables in front so you can enjoyed under the huge Christmas tree with snow falling.
The festival will last until 24th DEC only! So don’t miss that out too if you are in Sapporo this week!!
