[Japanese Iris Ensata Colony in Ebetsu] Beautiful Large Colony with Rich Purple Flowers
Japanese Iris Ensata Colony
Japanese Iris Ensata Colony (ノハナショウブ群生地) is a primeval flower garden in Ebetsu city located in the southeastern direction of Sapporo city, and is near Nanporo Onsen (南幌温泉). About 5,000 visitors come, so it is a little-known tourist attractions. Visitors might be difficult to find the garden because it is surronded by fields. About 50,000 Japanese Iris Ensata grow naturally at the site of 6,700 m2, and the best time to see is from late June to early July. Rich purple flowers covered the green land is worth seeing. Walks of about 360 m length in total are built around the garden, and it takes about 10 minutes to go a round on foot. I was interested in the Japanese Iris Ensata with changing backgrounds. A restroom and a parking lot are built at the site. Admission is a little token of your gratitude. The parking lot is free of charge.
Nanporo Onsen (南幌温泉) is a hot spring place in Nanporo town located in the eastern direction of Sapporo city. Nanporo Onsen Heart and Heart (南幌温泉ハート＆ハート) surrounded by fields and marshland is built near Chitose River. There are Nanporo Shinsui Park (南幌親水公園), Fukinoto Tower (ふきの塔) and Ice Carroll right across from a building. The distance is around 5 km away from the center of the Nanporo, and restraunts and convenience stores are not built aroud here. Japanese Iris Ensata Colony that is full in bloom from late June to early July is relatively near here. Speaking of the Nanporo, cabbage is a local specialty, and Large Fried Cabbage Rice Bowl (キャベツ天丼) of Nanporo Onsen Heart and Heart and Cabbage Kimchi Ramen of Kirara are famous. I ate it at the Kirara, and it was tasty. Read More
Look of Japanese Iris Ensata Colony
The Japanese Iris Ensata is wild original of more than 5,000 types of a domesticated form of the Japanese Iris, and Japanese Iris Ensata growing naturally is called "Japanese Iris Ensata". The flower was used as a work of Mr. Jyakuchu Ito (伊藤若冲) in Edo period, and the Japanese Iris Ensata was too much of a daily plant for early people. But it is vulnerable to dryness, and I do not know whether global warming effects it, and there has been a decline in colonies year by year in various parts of Japan. In Hokkaido, there are relatively many Japanese Iris Ensata Colonies, Beniya Nature Flower Garden and around Wakkanai. But there are few the Japanese Iris Ensata Colonies near a big city, so easy access to the Japanese Iris Ensata Colony in the Ebetsu is valuable.
