Tour flower spots in Hokaido
Touring flower spots in Hokkaido
The last leg of my touring flower spots in Hokkaido is Kamiyubetsu tulip park, which is located at the Sea of Okhotsk laying north-east of Hokkaido.
According to a guide book, the total area of the park is 12.5 hectares, and the 700,000 bulbs of tulip are planted in 7 hectares of it. Blooming season is late May because of the cool climate of the Sea of Okhotsk.
I visited there late May. I could see a vast and expanding land covered with full-blown tulip as far as I could see. Yoshino in Nara prefecture is famous for a vast number of cherry blossom trees at a glance, and Kamiyubetsu really is a place where a vast number of tulip flowers could be seen at a glance. The scenery was simply overwhelming.
