[Yayoi Park in Nayoro] One of Popular Places to See Cherry Blossoms in Nayoro
Yayoi Park (弥生公園) is in Yayoi, Nayoro city located between Asahikawa city and Wakkanai city, and the distance is about 8 km far away from downtown to here. Yayoi Shrine (弥生神社) and Former Teshio Yayoi Station "Tabibitoyado and Inaka Shokudo" (天塩弥生駅「旅人宿&田舎食堂」) are close to the park. This park is not large, and a few play equipment and a public restroom are built there. It is well-known as a a famous place for cherry blossoms by Nayoro citizens, and about 200 cherry trees are planted. The bese season to see the cherry blossoms is full bloom from early May to mid May. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
Nayoro (名寄) that about 30,000 people live is the 24th largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and is located between Wakkanai city and Asahikawa city, and is one of regional hub cities of the North Hokkaido area. The Nayoro means "A country near rivers" in Ainu language, and the downtown is between Nayoro River (名寄川) and Teshio River (天塩川). Furen that became incorporated with the Nayoro in 2006 is well-known for glutinous rice, and the planted area is the largest in Japan. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 30 degrees in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to nearly -30 degrees in a winter because Nayoro is located in a basin. Natural environment of abou 60-degrees temperature difference is one of features of the Nayoro. So natural phenomena such as SunPillar and Diamond Dust can be enjoyed. The Nayoro is just beside Bifuka town recorded the coldest temperature, -41.5 degrees, in Japan, and is one of the coldest region in the Hokkaido. 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 Yayoi Park
A slim unpaved road is built through the park, and visitors can reach the depth of the park by cars. But drive carefully because the road is narrow. The cherry trees are planted on the park that slopes. Unfortunately, the cherry blossoms had almost fallen when I visited here in May 18. But cherry blossom parties can be enjoyed in the case of full blossoms because the size of the park is that a lot of the visitors can hold the party on picnic sheets.
