June 1st, 2015
Mishimas Moss Pink (三島さんちの芝桜) is a private garden in Niseko, Kutchan town located in the western part of Sapporo city. Mr. Mishima has been planted the moss pink after retirement from farmer in the early 2000s. The area that the moss pink was planted seems to be 4,000 m2 now. I was really surprised at the area of moss pink very much when I visited here. These flowers are best viewed from late May to mid June. There is no charge for admission. A free parking lot and a restroom are provided, too. Because the garden is thrown open to visitors in his good faith, the visiotrs follow a manner, and let's appreciate the moss pink.
The moss pink garden is roughly divided into upper moss pink garden and lower moss pink garden across the road. Hilly geographical features expresses Mt. Yotei and Niseko Mountain Range. He is meticulous in details such as remaining snow expressed by moss pink. Because genuine Mt. Yotei can be overlook with Mt. Yotei shaped moss pink, it is a tourist attraction that Mt. Yotei (羊蹄山) enthusiast have to see.
