Milk-no-Sato (ミルクの郷) is a tourist attraction opened in 1996 in Higashi ward, Sapporo city, and is near Moerenuma Park (モエレ沼公園) and Satorand (さとらんど). Satsuraku Agricultural Cooperative Association (サツラク農業協同組合) runs it, and Milk Hall (ミルク館), Makiba Hall (まきば館), Cattle Hall (牛の館), Fureai Open Space (ふれあい広場), Barbecue House (バーベキューハウス) and a stall shop are at the site. Those are facilities for child.
Moerenuma Park (モエレ沼公園) is a comprehensive park in Higashi ward, Sapporo city. Moerenuma is a marsh, and Moere Marsh (モエレ沼) is a crescentic lake caused by river-improvement of Ishikari River (石狩川), and is named after "A slow‐flowing river" in Ainu language. The Moere Marsh used to be a waste disposal site, and it was developed as the park, and the park was established in 1998. Mr. Isamu Noguchi, a famous sculptor, designed the park, and facilities are built to harmonize nature with artifacts at the grounds of 1,888,000 m2. He reflected an image of engraving grounds. This park got the Good Design Award in 2002. Cheery blossoms can be enjoyed in a spring, playing in the water can be enjoyed in a summer, fall foliage can be enjoyed in an autumn, and cross country skiing and snow sled can be enjoyed in a winter, and the park is well-known as a peaceful place for Sapporo citizens. The best time to see the cherry blossoms is about early May. The best time to see the fall foliage is about from mid October to late October. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.

Visitors can enjoy a barbecue and be enable the contact with animals and visit a factory. The Satsuraku are well-known in Hokkaido, and their milk is sold well at a lots of stores, and is one of major milk brands in the Hokkaido. The milk collected from dairy farmers in the suburbs of the Sapporo is raw materials.
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Read More
Soft Serve Ice Cream
I heard that a soft serve ice cream made from the milk directly to a factory is eaten, so I visited here to eat the soft serve ice cream around 13:00 on Saturday. Admission free and a parking lot are free of charge. I bought a soft serve ice cream at a stall shop near the parking lot. The price was JPY 300.
The height including an ice cream cone was around 20 cm. The soft serve ice cream was a moist type of light and sweet soft serve. It was not rich taste, but it was tasty! I supposed that the soft serve ice cream was probably additive free, and it melted easily.
Only a type of the soft serve ice cream was sold at the stall shop, but some types of the soft serve ice cream were sold at the Makiba Hall, and a yogurt soft serve ice cream was very popular. I will try it next time. Thanks for the tasty soft serve ice cream!
