November 23rd, 2016

Midorigaoka Park

Midorigaoka Park (緑ヶ丘公園) is a general athletic playground of 87.20 ha nearby Tmakomai City Hospital in the northern part of Tomakomai city, and is close to Tomakomai Station, too. There are recreational facilities, an athletic field, a tennis court, a baseball stadium and a park golf course, Kintaro Pond (金太郎の池), a barbecue house, Forest of Cherry Blossoms (桜の森) and Midorigaoka Park Mountaintop Greenery (緑ヶ丘公園頂上広場), and the park is famous as a relaxing place for Tomakomai people. In addition, the park is well-known for a good place to see cherry blossoms and one of few places to view the Tomakomai. About 800 cherry tree are planted at the park, and Midorigaoka Park Festival (緑ヶ丘公園まつり) is held in early May, too. By the way, Aji-no-Gojuban (味の五十番) that I ate a good ramen is relatively near here.

Movie of Midorigaoka Park Festival

A hill at the Midorigaoka Park is developed as the Midorigaoka Park Mountaintop Greenery, and a monument to the loyal dead, a fountain and a greenery are built. Play equipment for child is borrowed, and a tiger is on the greeny. By the way, Popular Manga "A Town Where Only I am Missing" (僕だけがいない街) uses the Tomakomai as a motif, so here was used as a shooting place for Drama "A Town Where Only I am Missing".

Aji-no-Gojuban

Aji-no-Gojuban (味の五十番) is a long-established ramen restraunt in Futaba-cho, Tomakomai city. A couple manages the restraunt and have been cooking ramen for nearly 30 years. It is known as a ramen with the tasty light taste. Because an electronic-the word of mouth was high, I visited here around 11:00 on weekdays. The restraunt opened at 11:00. I was the firstcomer. The ramen restraunt had an atomosphere such as a typical ramen restraunt. There were some tables, so family customers seem to enjoy. Article is here
