July 17th, 2017

Hamanasu-no-Oka Park

Hamanasu-no-Oka Park (はまなすの丘公園) is a primeval flower garden in Ishkari city located in the northern part of Sapporo city, and is well-known for having Ishikari Lighthouse (石狩灯台), a symbol of the Ishikari, and is famous as a good place to see the beautiful sunset. A sand spit of 46 ha has been born at the mouth of the Ishikari River, the longest river in Hokkaido, and about 180 types of wild flowers such as Rosa Rugosa (ハマナス* Rosa Rugosa means "Hamanasu" in Japanese) that is an origin of the name "Hamanasu-no-Oka Park", V. grayi Franch. et Sava (イソスミレ), Glehnia Littoralis Colony (ハマボウフウ), Seashore False Bindweed (ハマヒルガオ) grow naturally. The best time to see the Rosa Rugosa is from late June to early July. An administrative building, Hamanasu-no-Oka Visitor Center (はまなすの丘ヴィジターセンター), wooden paths, gazebos and parking lots are built at the site. A public restroom is not built at the outside, so visitors had better get a wash beforehand at a restroom at the Hamanasu-no-Oka Visitor Center. Admission free. The parking lots are free of charge.

Shingen

Shingen head office (信玄本店) is a popular ramen restaurant in Hanakawa, Ishikari city adjacent to Sapporo city. A branch office is located in Susukino, Chuo ward, Sapporo city. Sengoku inc (センゴク). runs those, and they runs the Kagetora (景虎) of sister ramen restaurant, too. According to company name, I suppose an owner love the age of civil strife. By the way, I visited here around 10:50 before opening hour at 11:00, and I waited until the opening hour at my car. There was only me to be waiting. However, visitors began to come to the ramen restaurant in sequence at 10:55. There were 8 groups of visitors. It was the popular restaurant after all. Article is here

Rosa Rugosa Flavored Soft Serve Ice Cream

3 types of the Soft Serve Ice Creams, Rosa Rugosa Flavored Soft Serve Ice Cream, Swirl Soft Serve Ice Cream with Rosa Rugosa Flavor and Vanilla Flavor, and Vanilla Flavored Soft Serve Ice Cream are served, and the Rosa Rugosa Flavored Soft Serve Ice Cream is the most popular. The price is JPY 300. I bought it, and went up the 2nd floor. The Rosa Rugosa Flavored Soft Serve Ice Cream was light pink, and it tasted slightly rose hip jam. It was not too sweet and had a refreshing flavor. Article is here

Look of Hamanasu-no-Oka Park

The Wooden paths of 650 m total length are built at the park, and there also are small paths like an animal trail and beach trails with a ocean view, so the visitors can enjoy a variety of situations. A lot of wild birds seem to be watched, so some birdwatchers and photographers came when I visited here in mid July. A walking distance differs depending on the walking courses, but one lap is about 3.5 km, and it takes about from 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes on foot. Unfortunately, the Rosa Rugosa was already past its peak. But Yezo Large Pink (エゾガワラナデシコ) and Japanese Iris Ensata (ノハナショウブ) were in full bloom just in time.
