Sapporo Botanical Garden Reviews
Sapporo Botanical Garden Jun 30, 2009
In the middle of Sapporo is a botanical garden which is also the home to a couple of small museums about the Japanese northern people and animals. The garden is nicely laid out and there are a big greenhouse which contains different orchid species - and much more interesting - carnivore’s plants. Just as a word of advice - the carnivore’s plants are not behind bars - so do take care.
There are also different sections with the plants of the natural habitat of the Hokkaido and some traditional medical and agricultural plants of the island. There are also more traditional plants like a small rose garden and different sorts of flowers around the garden.
In one of the museums are the only two known stuffed examples of the Ezo Wolf which has gone extinct many years ago. In the same little museums is a variety of different stuffed animals from Hokkaido.
