Kamiyubetsu Tulip Fair

Kamiyubetsu Tulip Park (かみゆうべつチューリップ公園) is in in Kamiyubetsu, Yubetsu town located in the northern part of Kitami city, and is well-known as 2 major places famous for tulips together with Takino Suzuran Hillside National Government Park (滝野すずらん公園), and the Kamiyubetsu Tulip Fair (かみゆうべつチューリップフェア) is famous as one of 3 major Okhotsk Spring Festivals together with Higashimokoto Moss Pink Feastival (東藻琴芝桜祭) and Fairy Tale village Takinoue Moss Pink Festival (童話村たきのうえ芝ざくらまつり). The park surrounded by fields is developed as a flower field along Oketo National Route (National Route 242). It is the origin of the Kamiyubetsu Tulip Park that Mr. Terunori Nishikawa (西川照憲) planted a tulip, and described here as old people's farm in 1957. About 200 kinds of 1.2 million tulips are planted on the site of 700,000 m2 at present. I think that visitors must be very impressed by colorful tulip lines on the flatland. Admission is charged, but a parking lot is free of charge. Except the Kamiyubetsu Tulip Fair season, admission free. Read More

The tulips are planted in the Hana-no-Makiba of the Central Zone, and the visitors have to enter the entrance of the Keiryu Zone. The visitors must walk for about 30 minutes if the entrance is wrong because each entrances are not connected at the park. The Central Zone has Central Gate and East Gate, and the visitors can reach to the Country Garden (カントリーガーデン) with the tulips from each entrances. I visited there via the East Gate. The East Gate is decorated by circular pansies and welcome visitors. I was interested that there were a chair made of plants and gateposts made of the pansies near the East Gate.

SAPPORO

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
