Toyohiragawa Sakura-no-Mori (豊平川桜の杜) is a park at the riverbed of Toyohira River in Shiroishi ward, Sapporo city, and is near Sapporo Junction. About 1000 cherry trees such as Yezo Mountain Cherry Tree and Yoshino Cherry Tree have begun to be planted since 1990, and cherry trees are raised well now, so here is well-known as a good place to see cherry blossoms. Cherry blossoms are in full bloom from late April to early May. A public restroom, a drinking fountain, a gazebo and a parking lot are built at the site. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge.
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Read More
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. Read More
Cherry Blossoms of Toyohiragawa Sakura-no-Mori
Cherry trees are planted on the embankment of the Toyohira River. Walks are built at a forest of the cherry trees, so visitors can admire cherry blossoms closely. A conbination of the winding walks and the cherry blossoms is good as well. In addition, it is a rare cherry blossom viewing spot that moss pink and cherry blossom can be enjoyed at the same time. The site is not so large, so I suppose that some time looking around will be less than 30 minutes. A large brige is planning to be built at the site. Now the wide sky is comfortable, but I guess that a view is changed if the bridge will be completed.

By the way, Club Tourism (クラブツーリズム), a Japanese tour travel agency, provides various types of tours such as day trip tours or ordinary tours. In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol. Choosen tourist attractions are national parks such as Rishiri and Rebun, Shiretoko, and popular tourist places such as Furano and Biei, and some activities such as hiking and fruit picking are also enjoyed depending on seasons. If you are interested in tour trips, you should visit the club tourism's website for details.
