Naie Onsen (奈井江温泉) is a hot spring place in Naie town located in the northeastern part of Sapporo city. Only Hotel Kita-no-Yu (ホテル北乃湯) is built in a forest, and there is a park golf course on the site, too. The distance is around 6 km away form the center of the Naie, and restraunts, cafes, souvenir shops and convenience stores are not built. Niwayama Forest Nature Park (にわ山自然公園) is relatively famous tourist attractions near here. Speaking of tasty restaurants in the Naie, Karamatsuen (からまつ園) is popular in particular. I ate food at it, and it was so tasty. Unfortunately, they have been closed since September, 2019.
Niwayama Forest Nature Park
Niwayama Forest Nature Park (にわ山森林自然公園) is a park in Naie town located in the northeastern part of Sapporo city. 271 m altitude of Mt. Niwa has been developed as the park, and 1st Lookout (第一展望台) and 2nd Observation Deck (第二展望台) are built. About 1800 cherry trees such as Yezo Mountain Cherry Tree (エゾヤマザクラ) are planted at the mountain, and here is famous as one of good places to see the cherry blossoms in Sorachi district (空知). The best time to see the cherry blossoms is about early May. By the way, a mountain road that is the width of one car is narrow, so drive safely. In addition, bears may appear, beware of bears. Other visitors had a bear-avoiding bell when I visited here. Admission free. Parking lots are free of charge. The mountain road is closed from November to April. Article is here
