Marriage Cherry Blossoms Are in Full Bloom Every Years -Kitoushi Forest Park in Higashikawa-
June 8th, 2017
Kitoushi Forest Park (キトウシ森林公園) is comprehensive leisure facilities in Higasikawa town next to Ashikawa city. There are Canmore Ski Village (キャンモアスキー場), Court Asahikawa Country Club (コート旭川カントリークラブ), a park golf course, accommodations, a campsite, a store, Kitoushi Observatory (キトウシ展望台), Kitoushi Kogen Hotel (キトウシ高原ホテル) and a shrine around the foot of Mt. Kitoushi (キトウシ山) with 456 m in height. Cherry Tree Grove is on a hillside beside the Toyama Shrine (富山神社), and local people often go and see cherry blossoms. The best time to see is from late April to early May. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
About 400 Yezo Mountain Cherry Trees are planted as marriage memories by 72 couples in Higashikawa from 1993 to 1979 there, so it may be said "Marriage Cherry Trees". I think that the couples look foward to the arrival of a spring because great the cherry blossoms can be seen after over 40 years.
