Higashimokoto Moss Pink Park (ひがしもこと芝桜公園)| Oozora Town (大空町)

Hokkaido has two famous moss pink parks, one of them is Takinoue Park (滝上公園)(See the details→click here!), and the other is Higashimokoto Moss Pink Park (ひがしもこと芝桜公園)↓

When we went there, about 70% of moss pink are bloomed out like this↓

Let's go to an observatory on the top of the hill!

Climbing up the 287 steps, we will reach ...................

Yamazumi Shrine (山津見神社), which was built around 900 years ago!

 This park is around 100, 000㎡, as large as three baseball parks!!!!

But when you learn the history of this park, you must be surprised!
Mr. Chubachi's sister brought just a strain of moss pink from Rubeshibe (留辺蘂) to Higashimokoto (東藻琴).

That's the start of this park. After that, he made great efforts to create this huge moss pink park.

Actually he planted about 70% of moss pink here in this park alone!!!

This hill is light up at night, and very beautiful!

If you want to enjoy the park from the sky, why don't you take a helicopter!!

Don't miss "Ginreisui (銀嶺水)"in this park, one of the 100 most delicious spring water in Japan (日本名水100選).

Look at the faucet! Striped owls are the God for Ainu people!

 How about unique ice cream in this park?

This is pink moss ice cream!!!
