Bask in the majesty of these tall trees

Hokkaido University Poplar Avenue grew gradually, with a few trees brought back from America in 1903 by Hiroshi Mori. In 1911 more trees were brought back to Hokkaido to use as windbreaks for the college's farm—this was the beginning of the tree-lined avenue.

It's a lovely place to walk, but don't forget to check out the maidenhair and gingko trees along the east gates as well.
