April 16th, 2017

Kuriyama Park

Kuriyama Park (栗山公園) is a comprehensive park at foot of Mt. Mt. Odaishi (御大師山) in Kuriyama town (栗山) located in the eastern part of Sapporo city, and the distance is about 1 km away from the center of the Kuriyama. About 100,000 people come. Nakayoshi Zoo (なかよし動物園 * the Nakayoshi means "Good friends" in English), a tennis court, a baseball ground, a Japanese archery ground, food stalls, a barbecue site, public restrooms and parking lots are built at 0.24 km2 site. In a spring, here is well-known as a famous place for cherry blossoms in the Kuriyama, and the best time to see the cherry blossoms is about from early May to mid May. The park and roads are crowded during the cherry blossom season. In an autumn, the park is well-known as a famous place for fall foliage in the Kuriyama, and the best time to see the fall foliage is about from late October to early November. Admission free. The parking lots are free of charge.

The Nakayoshi Zoo is one of the features of the Kuriyama Park, and 14 types of 150 animals such Pony, Deer, Monkey, Rabit and Guinea Pig are bred. Paku-Paku Time (パクパクタイム) that visitors can feed the animals is popular. Admission free. I suppose that family tourists can enjoy themselves.

It is said that the Kuriyama has quality restaurants. Ajidokoro (味道広路), Kinsuian (錦水庵), Haraheita (はらへー太), Natoriya (名取屋) and Taiho (大鵬) are popular in particular. Japan's best Kibidango of Tanida (谷田の日本一きびだんご), a Hokkaido noted pastry, is produced in the Kuriyama, too. By the way, an express bus "Kosoku Kuriyama-go (高速くりやま号)" runs between the Sapporo to the Kuriyama.

Cherry Blossoms of Hokkaido

Cherry blossoms begin to bloom from late April in Hokkaido. The cherry blossoms in the Southern Hokkaido including Hakodate begin to bloom from late April, and in case of late blooming, the cherry blossoms in the Eastern Hokkaido and the Northern Hokkaido seem to bloom in early June. The cherry blossoms in Honshu (the main island of Japan) begin to bloom from mid March, and tourists can enjoy the cherry blossoms until too late season. If everybody forget to see the cherry blossoms in the Honshu, please visit the Hokkaido to savor the cherry blossoms. Article is here

Cherry Blossoms of Kuriyama Park

About 200 cherry trees such as Yezo Mountain Cherry and Yoshino Cherry are planted at the park. Cherry trees line along the both side of central path, and a view like a tunnel of the cherry blossoms is one of most beautiful points of the Kuriyama Park. But most of the cherry blossoms had fallen when I visited here. It was unfortunate. The cherry blossoms near the Japanese archery ground was very good. The site is not large, so it takes less than 60 minutes to look around on foot.
