[Tree of Success in Teshikaga] A Solo Cherry Tree to Cheer for Intending Examinees
Tree of Success
Tree of Success (合格の木) is a solo cherry tree in Okushunbetsu, Teshikaga town, and is near Okushunbetsu Shrine (奥春別神社). The lonely tree designed as a precious tree by the Teshikaga town is planted at a ranch. When Calbee (カルビー), a famous Japanese snack company, sold snacks to cheer for intending examinees, they launched a campaign "Get successful! Tree of Success (咲かせよう！合格の木)", and the solo cherry tree was chosen as a motif, so the cherry tree was named. It is also said that it is Cherry Blossoms of Success (合格の桜), so it is popular as a fortunate cherry tree related to an examinatio. In a spring, guided tree tour including the cherry tree is held. By the way, the ranch is not allow to enter.
The Tree of Success is only 10 km away from the center of the Teshikaga. Speaking of tasty restaurants in the center of the Teshikaga, Teshikaga Ramen Head Office (弟子屈ラーメン総本店), Poppotei (食堂と喫茶 ポッポテイ), Mashuko-no-Ice (摩周湖のあいす) and Ibuki (いぶき) are popular in particular. In addition, Seiryu (青龍) got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido Special Edition. I ate foods at the Teshikaga Ramen Head Office and the Seiryu, and those were tasty. By the way, hot springs gush out in the center of the Teshikaga, and the onsen is called "Mashu Onsen (摩周温泉)". A dat trip bathing can be enjoyed at some onsen facilities.
Mashu Onsen (摩周温泉) is a hot spring resort in Teshikaga town located in the northern direction of Kushiro city. The hot spring resort is divided into 2 hot spring places, Teshikaga Onsen (弟子屈温泉) along Kushiro River and Tobetsu Onsen (鐺別温泉) along Tobetsu River, and some hot spring facilities and accommodations are built there. Those hot spring places that were named after world famous Lake Mashu have been collectively called the Mashu Onsen since 1981. Road Station "Mashu Onsen" (道の駅「摩周温泉」) is built, and a footbath is on the site, too. In addition, Nandaro Bridge (なんだろう橋) and Suigo Park (水郷公園) are close to the road station, too. Teshikaga Station was renamed Mashu Staion in 1990. Souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes, convenience stores, Izakaya and bars with a surcharge are built in the center of the Teshikaga, too. As for tourist attractions around here, the Lake Mashu and Lake Kussharo (屈斜路湖) are famous in particular. 900 Sogen Grassland (900草原), Mt. Iou (硫黄山), and Kimto Marsh (キンムトー) are relatively near here.

Look of Tree of Success
A type of the cherry tree is a yezo mountain cherry tree (エゾヤマザクラ) with more than 150 years old. Its height is about 10 m. Its trunk is about 3 m. Visitors should park their cars on the shoulder of a farm road, and take a photo along the road. The cherry tree is far away, so it is necessary to prepare a telephoto lens. When I visited here on weekdays, some photographers came, so I guess that here is popular. I took photos to change different backgrounds while moving along the road. I was tired from walking so much.
