Beautiful Scenery of Shiretoko peninsula and Garden with Covered Natural Trees -Ikushina Primeval Flower Garden in Shari-
July 25th, 2014
Ikushina Primeval Flower Garden (以久科原生花園) is in Shari town located in the root of Shiretoko Peninsula (知床半島). The Ikushina Primeval Flower Garden is not famous, few people visit here. But, a scenery of the Shiretoko peninsula is wonderful. It may be said that this is a little-known spot of tourist attractions and is a slightly strange primeval flower garden, and it is divided into 2 parts, the sea side and the green belt side along the Sea of Okhotsk (オホーツク海). Tourists admire flowers along a slim straight path with about 1 km in length. Dianthus Superbus, Rosa Rugosa and Siberian Lily bloom from late June to mid July. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. There are no facilities such as a restroom and a stall.
There was a path on the right side when I arrived at the dead end. A garden was covered with woods. It was a natural tunnel with trees and a narrow path. Furthermore, visitors could see a collapsing primeval flower garden from the sea side. It is indeed at the mercy of nature. In adittion, the drift ice can be seen.
