Slim Wild Flower Garden Is Created by Lake Saroma and Sea of Okhotsk -Wakka Wild Flower Park in Tokoro, KItami-

August 19th, 2014

Wakka Wild Flower Park (ワッカ原生花園) is considerably large flower garden of 700 ha on a sandbar with 25 km in length between Lake Saroma (サロマ湖) and the Sea of Okhotsk (オホーツク海) in Tokoro-cho, Kitami city located in the northeastern part of Kitami city. About 300 kinds of wild flowers such as Siberian Lily, Rosa Rugosa, Orange-yellow Day Lily are in full bloom from April to July. The flowers hardly bloomed when I visited here in mid August. Bad luck.

A distance is about 5 km from the entrance to the most far place, Wakka Forest (ワッカの森), in the Wakka Wild Flower Park. Most tourists go there by bicycles. I walked a road named Ryugukaido (竜宮街道 * backbone of Dragon King), but it took about 60 minutes. Because I was tired plenty, everyone should rent the bicycles.

The Wakka Forest is a planted forest, and there is Wakka Water (ワッカの水) that fresh water gushes out. Though a land was sandwiched between the sea and the brackish water lake, the water was not salty at all. It was the most suitable water to heal my tired body. There are a restroom and a gazebo, heartwarming state that a family ate lunch was seen.
