Visitors Can Enjoy Scenery Like Scotland -Sheep Ranch in Yagishiri Island-

July 2nd, 2016

Sheep Ranch (めん羊牧場) is located in the central of Yagishiri Island (焼尻島), and an area is about 80 ha. About 500 suffolk sheep are grown and celebrity mutton "Pré Salé Yagishiri (プレ・サレ焼尻)" that are one of expensive mutton in Japan are produced. Meadows spread out along Onko street, and a scenery seems to be like the scenery of Scottland. I feel a foreign atmosphere, too, but I am surely a typical Hokkaido scenery. By the way, outlanders are prohibited from entering the meadows. Let's enjoy the scenery along the Onko street.
