Bairin and Cherry Blossoms

Hokkaido-jingu Shrine has Bairin and it is a place famous for cherry blossoms. About 250 plum trees (Bungo Ume, Ume with red blossoms and Ominato Ume) and about 1,400 cherry trees (Yezo Double Cherry Tree, Yoshino Cherry Tree and Double Cherry Tree) are planted at Bairin of 2200 tsubo, and cherry blossoms and ume blossoms can be enjoyed at the same time from early May to mid May. Because the flowering season of the cherry blossoms and the ume blossoms is different in most places of Japan, toursists can see a readily unusual scenery. About 40 stall stores open on shrine's area during the flowering season, too, and the Hokkaido-jingu Shrine get lively. Restrooms are built more, too. Open between 08:00 and 20:00.

Maruyama Zoo

Maruyama Zoo (円山動物園) is one of only 4 zoos in Hokkaido. 177 kinds of 924 animals are bred in February 28, 2014. There are 20 animal houses in the Maruyama Zoo, and it takes one hour 30 minutes even if tourists look around roughly. I thought that the zoo for children was very interesting. At the zoo for children, animals such as sheeps or chickens, ducks are bred, and tourists can observe those closely. It is very nice that the tourists are able to come in contact with animals.
