[Hoppou Primeval Flower Garden in Nemuro] 100 Types of Flowers or Pony Can Be Enjoyed in Little-known Tourist Attraction
Hoppou Primeval Flower Garden
Hoppou Primeval Flower Garden (北方原生花園) is the Japan's eastmost primeval flower garden in the northeastern part of Nemuro city, and is famous for grazing pony, and is about 15 km far away from the downtown of the Nemuro. There are ranches and sea around here. About 100 types of flowers bloom from late June to early September. Particularly, colonies of blackberry lily iris and cotton grass are popular, and the best time to see is from late June to early July. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. A public restroom (open only from May to November) is built near the parking lot. There are not a restaurant and a convenience store near here.
By the way, Express Aurora-go (オーロラ号), an express bus, runs between Sapporo and the Nemuro, and Limited Express Nemuro-go (特急ねむろ号), an express bus, runs between the Kushiro and the Nemuro. Unfortunately, the express bus does not run between New Chitose Airport and the Nemuro. Besides, Rent-a-car can be rented around Nemuro Station.
Nemuro (根室) that about 26,000 people live in is the 26th largest fishery city in Hokkaido, and one of regional hub cities of the East Hokkaido area, and is the easternmost port town in Japan. The Nemuro has 4 ports, Nemuro Port (根室港), Hanasaki Port (花咲港), Ochiishi Fishing Port (落石漁港) and Habomai Fishing Port (歯舞漁港), and it is famous for catching Hanasaki Crab (花咲ガニ) and Saury, and a catch of the saury is the largest in the Japan. As for a climate, the Nemuro faces the Sea of Okhotsk and the Pcific Ocean, so a wind blows hard. Average annual temperature is 6 degrees, and it is chilly in a summer, and it does not snow hard in a winter. Various things such as Cape Nosappu (納沙布岬) is the easternmost in the Japan, so visitors know the joy of the easternmost things in the Japan. It is a good point to see the earliest sunrise in the Japan, too. In addition, It is said that the Nemuro is famous for coming the last Cherry Blossom Front, and is one of latest cherry blossoming places in the Japan. Read More
Look of Hoppou Primeval Flower Garden
The Hoppou Primeval Flower Garden is a marshland of 75 ha in Nemuro Peninsula, and wooden paths with 2 km in total length are built on the marshland, and visitors can look round on the wooden paths. Here is not a famous tourist attraction, so few tourists come, and can enjoy themselves freely. It is said that here is a little-known tourist attraction. It takes about 30 minutes to walk around.
Quercus Crispula is famous, too, and a forest of the Quercus Crispula endured a strong wind from the Sea of Okhotsk grow wild, and grow up in strangely shape. Trees can be observed at the forest. Ponies are pastured at the site, and they walked freely on the wooden paths, too. I am glad that the ponues are watched closely. Because the ponies run away if visitors do not lock a gate to go in and out, please be careful.
