October 27th, 2017

Takinoue Park (滝の上公園) in Yubari city located in the southeast part of Sapporo city is known as a beauty spot for fall foliage. A valley eroded by Yubari River (夕張川) goes well with the fall foliage, especially, Chidorigataki Falls (千鳥ヶ滝) and Ryusenkyo Gorge (竜仙峡) are famous. The best time to see is from early October to mid October. In addition, Momiji Festival (紅葉まつり * Fall Foliage Festival) is held on Saturday and Sunday in mid October. There are Takinoue Power Plant (滝の上発電所), parking lots, a restroom and a shop around an entrance of the park. Admission free. The parking lots are free of charge.

The Takinoue Power Plant is a hydroelectric power generation built in 1925. Red bricks have a historical atmosphere. The power plant comes online only from March to May. Unfortunately, it can not be seen up freely. But it is open for the general public when the Momiji Festival is held on Saturday and Sunday in mid October.

The Chidorigataki Falls has another name, Yubari Falls (夕張滝), too. Ainu people used to live around here. They named around the Chidorigataki Falls as Kamuikotan (カムイコタン) that means "The land that gods live in" because the harsh landscape ward off the poeple. Speaking of the Kamuikotan, its name in Asahikawa is famous, and I have never known the Kamuikotan in Yubari. By the way, the width of the river is around 100 m when snow melts.
