May 3rd, 2014

Naie Onsen

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.

Niwayama Forest Nature Park

Niwayama Forest Nature Park (にわ山森林自然公園) in Naie is located in the northeastern part of Sapporo city. This park is one of major places for cherry blossoms in Sorachi district, and cherry blossoms are in full bloom in early May. Niwayama Forest Nature Park has first observatory (第一展望台) and second observatory (第二展望台), and about 1800 cherry trees such as Yezo mountain cherry (エゾヤマザクラ) are planted on mountinas. As for the first observatory, there are only benches at a site, but it has a nice view. Cherry trees lined along a mountain road and its road was just like a tunnel of cherry blossoms when I visited here. But width of the road was narrow and was around width of one car. Drive safely.
