Since the weather actually held up fairly well yesterday, we also went to the Hokkaido University Botanical Gardens. In the evening, we hung out at Odori Koen.
The botanical gardens seemed more like a slightly controlled forest, but they were nice to walk through. I highly recommend large amounts of mosquito repellant, however.
There was a bridge over a stagnant, mosquito filled lake.
A butterfly and a bee on cute puff-ball flowers.
Another bee collecting pollen from an interesting yellow puff flower.
There was a really nice rose garden.
There was a pretty rose-covered archway in the garden.

An odd bug on a pretty purple flower.
A cute mini bell flower.
This is some variety of carnivorous plant. I thought it was really pretty!
Lotuses are one of my favorite flowers. Here’s an especially beautiful purple one.
Itsy bitsy Venus fly traps!!
Yesterday evening, we wandered through Odori Koen.
There are many cute flower displays, including these seals.
This sculpture is actually a really fun slide!
This is the Sapporo TV Tower.
Sometimes, the tower does a light show.
Another show of the light show.
After the light show finishes, the closer fountain stops spraying and you can see the reflection of the tower in the pond.
Well, that is all for now!
