Pink World of Japan's Largest Area with Planting Moss Pink Take Us Breath Away! -Higashimokoto Moss Pink Feastival in Ozora-

May 20th, 2015

Higashimokoto Moss Pink Festival (東藻琴芝桜祭) is held from early May to early June in Higashimokoto, Ozora town located in the southern part of Abashiri city. The moss pink is a perennial plant of the family Polemoniaceae native of North America and is a kind of Phlox. As well as Takinoue Moss Pink Festival (滝上芝桜公園), Higashimokoto Moss Pink Festival is famous, too, and is proud of the largest area planted moss pink in Japan. I was surprised at the state that the moss pink was in full bloom over mountains of 100,000 m2. You will be overwhelmingly beautiful red, pink, purple and white color, too. Admission is charged, but a parking lot is free of charge. In addition, each facilities are charged, too.

Yamatsumi Shinto Shrine (山津見神社) built on a hilltop, tourists can pray to a god for help in achieving a goal. The shinto shrine is rare for having a pink torii. There is a observatory deck aside the Yamatsumi Shinto Shrine, and the visitors can look over Higashimokoto Moss Pink Park. The tourists can look at Mt. Mokoto (藻琴山) and enjoy a typical of Hokkaido scenery, too. It will take around 2 hours to look around the park slowly. If it is fine, visitors's heart will be certainly healed by a fragrance of the moss pink and splendid scenery.

    Hi, Anterpreet Singh Arneja san,
    Thank you for your comment.
    Yes! That is a nice place.
    Fresh air and sweet smell of pink moss will probably make you activate.
