Strange Shaped Quercus Crispula and Ponies Paradise -Hoppou Wild Flower Garden in Nemuro-
July 8th, 2014
Hoppou Wild Flower Garden (北方原生花園) is a marshland of 75 ha in the Nemuro Peninsula and the Japan's eastmost wild flower garden. Approximately 100 kinds of flowers bloom from late June to early September. Particularly, colonies of the blackberry lily iris and the cotton grass are popular and are in full bloom from late June to early July. Wooden paths with 2 km in total length are built on the marshland, and tourists can take a walk on the wooden paths. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. There is a restroom (open only from May to November) near the parking lot.
Quercus Crispula is famous, too, and a forest of the Quercus Crispula that endure a strong wind from the Sea of Okhotsk grow wild and grow up in strangely shape. Quercus Crispula can be observed at the forest. Ponies are pastured at the site, and they walked freely on the wooden paths, too. I am glad that the ponues are watched closely. Because the ponies run away if visitors do not lock a gate to go in and out, please be careful.
