November 24th, 2016

Saika-no-Sato

Saika-no-Sato (彩香の里) is a tourist flower garden in Nakafurano town located in the southeastern part of Asahikawa city, and was choosen as a shooting place for Japanese Movie "LOVE LETTERS at SIXTY". Colorful flowers such as Lavender and Sage are planted on flower field of 6 ha, hillside with an altitude of about 310 m. The Saika-no-Sato was founded by Sasaki Farm in 1988, I do not know the details, but SSVR7 corp that deals with osmetics in South Korea has run since 2014, and the Sasaki Farm seems to maintain the garden as Saika-no-Oka. The Saika-no-Sato is open from June to September, and it is said that July is the best season that the lavender is in full bloom in particular. There are an observation deck, a cafe and restaurant, a souvenir shop, a parking lot and a restroom on the site. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge.

Azemichi Yorimichi

A characteristic of this restaurant is vegetable after all. Because the visitors can eat the vegetables in a field under Tokachidake mountain range, so the visitors seem to feel having enjoyed Hokkaido. Article is here

Santa-no-Hige of Popura Farm

Popura Farm Head Office (ポプラファーム本店) is a store specializing in Santa-no-Hige (サンタのヒゲ * Santa Claus's beard) in Nakafurano town. You may not know what the Santa-no-Hige is. In fact, it is sweets that put soft serve ice cream on a flesh of melon. A smooth curve of appearance would look like santa claus's beard. But it becomes noted sweets of Furano district now. I visited the head store in order to eat such famous dessert. Article is here

Flower Fields

The lavender, Marigold, the Sage and Sunflower bloom on the hillside with elevation difference of about 40 m, and walks are built, too. The observatoion deck is built around the hilltop, and flowers and a pastoral scenery can be looked over. The views are very good. The time it takes to look around colorful flowers on the hillsides is around 1 hours. You may be tired because of a difference of elevation, so you should wear comfortable shoes. They pay a lot of attention to a shooting place for wedding photography, and new makeup room is built, too.
