Overview

The botanical gardens, which are run by the Faculty of Agriculture of Hokkaido University, were opened in 1886. It is home to more than 5,000 species of plants, many of which are unique to Hokkaido. Located in the dense forests of Japanese beech, elm, oak and maple, the grounds of this truly impressive collection of vegetation are a haven of tranquility which make it the perfect place to visit if you need a break from the city crowds. There is also a small museum of housing items—ceremonial objects, tools, household utensils, and clothing—belonging to the Ainu or Japanese aborigines. Check out the website for more details.
