Lake Saroma Wakka Primeval Flower Garden (Ryugu Kaido) (サロマ湖ワッカ原生花園(龍宮街道))
"The name ""Wakka"" means ""fresh water"" in Ainu language and the name comes from the phrase ""Wakka-O-I,"" meaning ""a place with fresh water."" It stems from the fact that there was a pond from which fresh water gushes forth near the center of the shoal of Lake Saroma. The road that leads for the shoal is called the Ryugyu Highway and has long been a beloved as a great place to see both the sea and the lake. More than 300 varieties of flowering plants in the area, which is a breeding ground for wild birds. The flowers reach peak bloom between late June and mid July most years."

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
