Here is a main park named "Odori park" located in the heartland of Sapporo. I remember it was a day when cheerfulness to which the blue sky of entering spreads out is good in early summer. The citizens came out in the park and the rest was taken in warm sunlight.
Sapporo City was developed in full scale by Hokkaido Development Commissioner that had been put at the Meiji era. As for the street, the township system in the United States and Kyoto were assumed to be a model and the city was developed. It becomes like partitioned into squares as shown in the town.
It is political and an economic center city in the government-designated major city in the Japanese north of Hokkaido now.
Odori Park is a park located in the heart of Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan. Odori means "large street" in Japanese. It stretches east to west through Nishi 1 chome, dori to Nishi 12 chome, Odori ("Nishi" means west, and "chome" is a block in Japanese), and divides the city into north and south sections. Odori Park spans about 1.5 km and covers 78,901m2. During the urban planning of Sapporo, it was originally designated as the main street but it eventually became a park. Throughout the year, many events and ceremonies such as the Sapporo Lilac Festival and the Sapporo Snow Festival are held in the park, and local landmarks including the Sapporo TV Tower and the Sapporo City Archive Museum are located within it's boundaries.

Good composition with different elements, the flower bed, the fountain, the communication tower; and people paying no attention to any of these things. I like it.

Wonderful cityscape with the flowers in foreground and the fountain.
Excellent daily life picture.
Splendid panorama view with green area.
Excellent perspective and depth picture.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant for look at.
Very well done, TFS.

nice snapshot with this colourful little square on the foreground, with the fountain on the left and the tower on the backdrop to dominate the image.Three elements-points of view creating a triangle.

A nice park in bright sunny day, with some contrasting colors. It's well composed, I like how the flowers, the water fountain and the figs in the mid ground lead the eye through the park and beyond to attractive tower in the backdrop. The brightness and the colorful foreground and the blue sky give it an interesting picture and really get a feel of location. Wonderful shot, well done. Congrats and TFS
