June 9th, 2017

Temiya Park

Temiya Park (手宮公園) is a comprehensive park on a hill around the center of Otaru city, and has been established since 1900, and has Temiya Botanical Garden (手宮緑化植物園) and Otaru Temiya Park Arena (小樽手宮公園競技場), and the Temiya Botanical Garden is famous for the cherry blossoms. The best time to see is from late April to early May. In addition, it is said that night view from here is very good, too. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. There is a public restroom beside the parking lot. Drive carefully because the parking lot is small. Otaru Synthesis Museum (小樽市総合博物館), Otaru Steam Locomotive Museum (小樽市蒸気機関車資料館), Temiya Cave (手宮洞窟) and The Place of Railway's Birth in Hokkaido (北海道鉄道発祥の地) are relatively near here.

Otaru

Otaru (小樽) that 120,000 people live is the 9th largest port city in Hokkaido, and is located in the located in the northwestern part of Sapporo city. It takes about 30 minutes from the Sapporo to the Otaru by a train. The Otaru is one of most popular tourist cities in the Hokkaido, and about 8 million people visit here. It is also well-known as a city with a lot of slopes, and there are 30 slopes with its name, so the Otaru has a lot of slope lands, and has a lot of narrow roads. It is famous as a city with a lot of sushi restaurants, too, and more than 100 sushi restaurants open their businesses. Fresh seafood caught in the Sea of Japan facing the Otaru or caought in various places of the Hokkaido can be enjoyed. As for a climate, the Otaru has calm climate, it is cold in a summer, and it snow hard. The Otaru was called an inaccessible land in the old days because all transportation facilities paralyzed by a heavy snow. Article is here

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 Temiya Park

The Temiya Botanical Garden at the hillside of about 70 m altitude is divided into 15 areas such as Japanese Garden (日本庭園), Cherry Tree Garden (桜園) and Rhododendron Garden (シャクナゲ園), and visitors can enjoy flowers and plants depending on different season. About 700 cherry trees such as Yoshino Cherry Tree (ソメイヨシノ), Yezo Mountain Cherry Tree (エゾヤマザクラ) and Chishima Cherry Tree (チシマザクラ) are planted, and here is famous as a good place to see the cherry blossoms. Otaru Port can be viewed, too, so a lot of the visitors come to see a nice conbination of the sea and the cherry blossoms in a spring. Most of Yoshio Cherry Blossoms had already fallen when I visited here in 9th May, 2017. If those were to be in full bloom, I also think it is the great conbination. By the way, fall foliage can be enjoyed in an autumn.
