A large park that is famous of "Shibazakura" (a kind of small purple flower), which run by a group of local farmers. The flower blossoms around middle of May and the view is spectacular.
The location is quite far away from the city, travelers without car could visit here by bus (Abashiri Kanko Kotsu, 網走観光交通) and taxi. Meanwhile, the park also provides free shuttle bus (needs reservation by telephone) from the bus station during the blossom period.

I think this place is better than the Takinoue Park of Pink Moss. This place is easier to park and get around.
The flowers were Beautiful.

Beautiful sight of the purple moss covering the entire hillside, but always a challenge to catch it at full bloom and on a sunny day.
