Sapporo 3

We returned to the Flower Carpet the following morning, Saturday, and enjoyed listening to a choir of school children looking very smart in their school uniforms.  We took a stroll around the city’s botanical gardens created in the early 1900s on a site that had been inhabited for a thousand years by the indigenous tribes that lived on the fertile plain of the Toyohira river.  The beautiful arboretum contained vestiges of the broad leafed forests that existed on the site before the gardens were created.

  

Back in the city centre we wandered around stalls selling street food, beer, garden plants and crafts. We had a corn on the cob for lunch – cost about £1.50 each.
