May 25th, 2014
Takinoue Moss Pink Festival (滝上芝ざくらまつり) is a flowering event in Takinoue town located in the northeastern part of Asahikawa city. The moss pink bloom from early May to early June, Takinoue Moss Pink Festival is held at Shibazakura Takinoue Park (芝ざくら滝上公園) on a hill. As well as Higashimokoto Moss Pink Festival (東藻琴芝桜祭), the moss pink is planted on the hill of 100,000 m2. It is said that it is one of the largest moss pink flowering areas in Japan. Takinoue people have grew the moss pink into such the large colonies from a few seedlings for 50 years. It is a great effort.
Except the moss pink, tulips are planted, and the combination of the tulips and the moss pink are worth seeing, too. There are a souvenir shop "Phlox House (フロックスハウス)", a light meal shop "Rest House (レストハウス)", a restroom in the site, and a meal and an break can be eaten, too. In addition, tourists can take a sightseeing flight by a helicopter. Of course, the tourists cost those.
