A beautiful area surrounding a lake. Nice variety of local flora (and the occassional small, friendly birds) including blossoms. Loads of photo opportunities and a great place to chill out

You should not miss this attraction. The building is lovely and it tells some interesting history stories about Hokkaido. The park is just lovely to stroll around. Entrance is free It is closed on weekends.

This was recommended as an attraction for visitors and coaches of tourists flooded this site even in a cold day. I am probably too old to find this an attraction anymore after been to so many grand buildings.

Had a very interesting museum inside with multiple exhibits and easy to understand, most was in Japanese but there was a lot of English available and the night-time light show is very interesting lasting for approximately 15 minutes but is well worth it.

Visited in June 2017. Interesting place to learn about Hokkaido history and appreciate the vintage architecture. The grounds were simply beautiful, with flowers everywhere. It was also peaceful to walk by the pond.

The building itself is not really wheelchair friendly. It is an old building with staircases. A short stroll at the garden would be good though.
