西崗公園 / Nishioka Park


Nishioka Park (Sapporo City, Toyohira-ku) has an artificial lake created by the damming of the Tsukisamu River. This used to be used as a water supply for Sapporo city. There is a symbolic building which worked as the intake facility, which is now a registered cultural property. It looks like a hexagonal house with a red roof. In the park, there is a large wet land, with skunk cabbage flowers blooming in spring. In summer, the highlight is fireflies at night; with the season running from mid to end July. There are also long paths where people can see small creatures such as dragonflies and squirrels.

米町公園 / Yonemachi Park


Yonemachi Park (Kushiro City) is on a hill on a small peninsula. There is a free observation deck which looks like a lighthouse. Visitors can take in Kushiro Harbor from here. On a fine day, it is possible to see the famous and beautiful Mt. Mashu-dake and Mt. Shari-dake. It is also possible to see the Hidaka Mountains in the Tokachi District. Yonemachi is an older part of Kushiro and used to be the economic center in the beginning of the 20th century. There is a free historical museum in front of Yonemachi Park.

神內Farm21 / Jinnai Farm 21
