[Yurigahara Park in Sapporo] Paradise of Flowers

Yurigahara Park

Yurigahara Park (百合が原公園) is a comprehensive park of 254,000 m2 in Kita ward, Sapporo city, and has opened since 1983, and is away from the center of the Sapporo. As its name suggests, lilies collected from all over the world are planted. * The Yurigahara means "A liliy field" in English. Here is famous for enjoying flowers and plants through the year, and about 6,400 types of the plants can be seen. I feel here is not a park but a garden, and think that it is comparable to famous gardens in Hokkaido, and the park that is able to be enjoyed in the Sapporo is one of the lagest gardens in the Hokkaido. Here is a peaceful place for Sapporo citizens, and I often see strolling local people, and a lot of families bring their tents to play themselves all day. Admission free. Parking lots are free of charge.

SAPPORO

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

Lily

The World Lily Gardens is the largest garden in the park, and about 100 types of lilies collected from all over the world are plante at site of 50,000 m2, and are bloom from mid June to early September. The best time to see the lilies is mid July. Vivid colors are covered with a star-shaped flower bed and a central flower bed. Some places are photogenic, so I think that visitors can feel excited.

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.
