7 Million Lilies Go Well with Blue Sky and White Birch -Lily Park in Koshimizu-
August 12th, 2016
Yuri-no-Sato Koshimizu Lily Park (ゆりの郷こしみずリリーパーク) is located in Koshimizu town in southeastern Abashiri city and was founded in 1998. About 110 types of 7 million flowers such as lily are planted on 2 hills of around 13 ha. It open a business from early July to early September and best viewing is from early August to mid August. Many types of liles such as early lily or late lily flower depending on the season. Late lilies did not flower yet when I visited here in early August. An entrance fee is JPY 500 for adult. * The entrance fee changes depeding on the season. A parking lot is free of charge.
There are a ticket counter, a restroom, a restraunt and a stall around an entrance. Visitors can enjoy meals and use the restroom without buying the ticket. My eyes caught a stage after passing a gate. Lily festival (ゆりフェスティバル) that Japanese singer join is held on the stage. Then I passed an another gate and looked around in a counterclockwise direction. It seems to take about 1 hour to enjoy to your heart's content. By the way, there are a restraunt and a golf curt stan near the gate, and the visitors can use the golf curt for a fee.
There is an obseravatory on a hill, and the visitors can look over the Lily Park. That view was good. I went down along Path of White Birch and admired other flowers as well as lilies at a small garden. Then I went up another hill and enjoyed the lilies of 2 hills there.
