Yokosuto Marsh May Be Said "Yokosuto Wild Flower Garden" and Great Growing in Colony -Yokosuto Marsh in Shiraoi-
August 15th, 2016
Yokosuto Marsh (ヨコスト湿原) is a little-known marsh that was chosen as "500 Important Wetlands in Japan" near Shiraoi Higashi Hish School (白老東高校) in Shiraoi town located in the western part of Tomakomai city. About 465 types of plants and about 64 types of wild birds can be observed. Yokosuto means "A place that great quantities of quarry is caught" in Ainu language. Japan national route 36 divided into land side and sea side. It is the sea side that I visited in early August.
Hosta Sieboldii Var. Rectifolia and Dianthus Superbus grew in colonies on the sea side. Iris ensata or Blackberry lily seem to be in full bloom depending on seasons, so it may be said "Yokosuto Wild Flower Garden (ヨコスト原生花園)". Mt. Tarumae (樽前山) can be seen if it is fine. The Sea can be enojoyed near the beach. There is not a facility at all. Visitors can park their cars on the shoulder. Admission free.
