History

The Sapporo Satoland was established in 1995. Facilities have been run by a caretaker, Sato Mirai Project Group since April 1, 2006.[1] After the expansion to the west side in 2004, the total area of the Satoland was extended to about 74 ha.[2] The Sapporo Snow Festival has had three main sites in Sapporo, and the utilization of Makomanai site was suspended in 2005. The site was moved to Satoland since 2006, and huge snow slide and maze have been made during the festival. From the festival in 2009, the site was moved to the Sapporo Community Dome (Tsudome). Remains of the early Satsumon period, a prehistoric period in Hokkaidō between 9th and early 10th century, is located in the park, and the grain relics were revealed to be cultivated in the site during the Satsumon period. Agricultural activities in the Satsumon period has been unknown, and the relics from the remain in Satoland became a clue to understand the origin of agriculture in Hokkaidō prefecture.[3]
