Lily Park

Yuri-no-Sato Koshimizu Lily Park (ゆりの郷こしみずリリーパーク) is a flower garden in Koshimizu town located in southeastern Abashiri city, and was founded in 1998. About 110 types of 7 million flowers such as lilies are planted at 2 hills of around 13 ha. About 80,000 visitors come. Business season is about 2 months from early July to early September. The best time to see those is from early August to mid August. Various types of the liles such as early lily or late lily bloom depending on the seasons. The late lilies did not bloom yet when I visited here in early August. An entrance fee is JPY 500 for adult. * The entrance fee changes depeding on the seasons. A parking lot is free of charge. By the way, the Lily Park changes to Snowmobile Land Koshimizu (スノーモービルランド こしみず) in a winter.

A ticket counter, a public restroom, a restraunt and a food stall are built near the entrance. The visitors can enjoy meals, and use the public restroom without buying the ticket. Lily flavored soft serve ice cream is sold at the restraunt and the food stall. My eyes caught a stage after passing a gate. Lily Festival (ゆりフェスティバル) is held on Sunday, late July, and a Japanese singer sings a song on the stage. Then I passed another gate, and walked in a counterclockwise direction on foot. It seems to take about 1 hour to enjoy to your heart's content. By the way, a restraunt and a golf curt stan are built near the gate, and the visitors can use the golf curt for a fee.

An obseravation deck is built on a small hill, and the visitors can view the Lily Park. That view was good. I went down along Path of White Birch (白樺の小径), and admired other flowers as well as the lilies at a small garden. Then I went up another hill, and enjoyed the lilies of 2 hills there.
