■Smooch Coffee Stand
Started as a trailer parked right outside Nakajima Park, Smooch Coffee Stand has since taken on a physical storefront where it began.
Enter the park through rows of bright yellow gingko trees that doubles as a gateway, welcoming you to explore the beautiful foliage within. The best time to visit is in the autumn.
Exuding a quaint hippie vibe, Smooch Coffee fits in perfectly with the calming ambience of Nakajima Park and its various art and cultural facilities within, along with neighbouring Susukino, Sapporo’s downtown area.
This makes the public park a natural hotspot for visitors to slow things down during a day in the inter-city, relaxing with a cup of warm coffee while breathing in the fresh garden air.
