Kamigoryo Cherry Tree
Kamigoryo Cherry Tree (上御料の一本桜) is a yezo mountain cherry tree along Hokkaido Route 985 in Furano city, and is near Furano Ski Resort and Ninguru Terrace (ニングルテラス). At the pasture, only the cherry tree against Mt. Furano Nishi-dake (富良野西岳) looks beautiful, so it is famous as a good place to see cherry blossoms. Cherry blossoms are in full bloom from early May to mid May. Visitors are not allow to enter the pasture because the pasture is a private land. A parking lot and a restroom are not provided. You should watch out for cars because visibilty is poor on the road.
Ninguru Terrace (ニングルテラス) is a popular tourist attraction at the site of New Furano Prince Hotel (新富良野プリンスホテル) in Furano, and is a village for selling original works using natural materials as a motif. 15 log houses and wooden boardwalks are built in a forest. A lot of couples and families attracted by the Ninguru Terrace such as an atmosphere of a hidden village with the warmth of the wood visit here.

A Cherry Tree and Mt. Furano Nishi-dake
Numauchizawa River (沼内沢川) flows between the Hokkaido Route 985 and the pasture, so visitors can see the cherry tree along the road or the river. I guess that the height is about 10 m. Visitors can enjoy pink cherry blossoms against the Mt. Furano Nishi-dake with remaining snow, and it is a wonderful scenery. Hay rolls are on the pasture, so a typical view of Hokkaido also is good. Here is not a tourist attraction, but a lot of visitors come in a cherry blossom season, and it is a little-known cherry blossom viewing spot.
