Namako adjacent to Asahigaoka Comprehensive Park (朝日ヶ丘総合都市公園) in Furano city in Furano Ashibetsu Prefectural Natural Park (富良野芦別道立自然公園), and is separated from the downtown of the Furano by Sorach River, and is near Furano Ski Resort and Ninguru Terrace (ニングルテラス).

Cherry Blossoms of Asahigaoka Park and Asahigaoka Comprehensive Park

Cherry blossoms are enjoyed at the Asahigaoka Park and the Asahigaoka Comprehensive Park.

Cherry Blossoms of Asahigaoka Park

The Asahigaoka Park has been built on the Mt. Namako since 1930. It all started when Mr. Seiki Miyata (宮田 静機), the chief priest of Furano Temple (富良野寺) with believers made a worship path named 88 Buddha Statues of Asahigaoka (朝日ヶ丘八十八ヶ所). A buddha statue has been set at the Furano Temple, the starting point of the worship path, and 87 buddha statues have been set along walks on the Mt. Namako. Namakoyama Hiking Trail (なまこ山散策コース) is also built at present, so Furano people enjoy hiking.

Furano Ashibetsu Plain (富良野芦別平原) has been designed as one of 100 New Best Tourist Attractions in Japan (新日本観光地百選) held by Mainichi Shimbun (毎日新聞社) since 1950, and Furano Plain can be viewed from the Asahigaoka Park. A parking lot and a public restroom are built on the Mt. Namako, and visitors can go up the mountain by cars, and a road turns into the one-way road. When I visited here, cherry blossoms along the road were impressive.

Ridge Path (尾根の道) to the mountaintop is built, and Prayer Monument for Peace (平和祈念塔), Monumet for Asahigaoka Park (朝日ヶ丘公園記念碑), a gazebo, Kyubei Arata Shotokuhi (荒田久平翁頌徳碑) and Statue of Upper Body of Tokubei Kabutoya (兜谷徳平翁胸像) are along the path. The length of the path is about 400 m. An open space is in front of the Prayer Monument for Peace, and some benches are provided, and visitors can relax, for example, people have a lunch there. Although the direction of the Furano Downtown can be seen, I guess that people may not enjoy a good view because of tree branches.
