Visitors Can Enter Japanese Yew Dome -Onko-no-So in Yagishiri Island-
July 3rd, 2016
Onko-no-Sho (オンコの荘) is a part of Onko-no-Mori (オンコの森) and is located along a walk path between Uguisudani Vallay (ウグイス谷) and Shirahama Camping Ground (白浜キャンプ場) in the southern part of Yagishiri Island (焼尻島). Onko means Japanese yew in Hokkaido dialect and a large tree grows about 20 m in length. But at this place, Japanese yew can not grow for strong wind and snow and shapes of winding branches are complicated. Some Japanese yew with 2 m in length form a dome, and visitors can enter the inside. But please watch out for protecting from branches because the length of the trees is very low. By the way, a scenery of a combination of the sea and a sheep ranch is superb from here. Admission free.
