Good coffee in Sapporo? of course! Marumi Coffee near the Odori Park is great!
In Japan, there’s a lot of moms and pops old fashion coffee shop, some of them is good, some of them are too old in fashion to serve good coffee. Marumi Coffee, on the other hand, is quite up to the current, fresh beans from the worlds with different selections, and good skilled baristas.
Good place to stop by if you are in Sapporo, Japan!

Odori park is a inner city park in the city of Sapporo in Hokkaido, Japan. It located in the center of the city, last about more than 10 blocks, its a good place for citizens to have a place for exercise, and a casual walk in a busy day. The best time to visit the park is in Fall season when the leaves turned yellow and red, and also the winter season when there’s Sapporo Snow sculpture festival.
We planed to visit in Fall, but the leaves were not yet turned color, they had Sapporo Fall Food Festival, it was great, but hard to show on picture, will share the picture of the food next time!
I always like the interior design of the Intelligentsia Venice location. The espresso station and coffee utilities in the center with a open bar design, also the exposed water pipe, high ceilings, looks like an elegant factory, which they produce great coffee!
