Konnichiwa! It’s autumn season in Sapporo. That’s means foliage watching is a must not miss activity. I begin my journey from Sapporo station to Makomanai Subway station and it take 15 minutes walking to the park from the station.


As I approach, the parking lot of the palce also looks beautiful. Entrance cost 300 Yen per person which is reasonable price for the size of park.


After some strolling, I approached to the restaurant inside the park. It seems to be crowded with people in 11 AM. I noticed that Genkhis Khan is quite popular in the resturant too. However, I decided to go with Niji Masu set (rainbow trout).


The window outside of restaurant seems to be fantastic in autumn.


Here it comes! The set contains rainbow trout Sashimi, fried shrimp, fried rainbow trout, fried pumpkin, side dishes, miso soup and grapes.


Even the texture are similar to salmon, the texture of rainbow trout are much chewy compared to salmon (in a good way).


Fried shrimp and rainbow trout are divine. Combination of crispiness and sweetness is just insanely good.


Grapes are crazy sour.


Then I went for a little walk in the park after my meal. Lots of beautiful sight of this beautiful park.


That’s all for this review. Personally, I think this place is one amazing choice for autumn viewing. See you later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊.

I started my trip from Sapporo subway station to Oyachi station. Then took Chuo bus No.69 and stopped at 平岡4条2丁目 bus stop. Driving is also possible however, the parking space is quite limited and crowded in Autumn. Park closes on Monday and opens until 5th November 2017.


The park is full if maple leaf and it’s one of most enjoyable moment in Autumn. If you loves photography, this place is definitely worthwhile in Autumn.


Thanks to an unknown stranger that I asked to take a photo for me in the park. I got this awesome photo with myself in. Such a remarkable balance of composition.
