Lake Saroma Wakka Primeval Flower Garden (Ryugu Kaido) (サロマ湖ワッカ原生花園(龍宮街道))

4.0

Other Natural Terrain

"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."

Review of Wakka Genseikaen

Reviewed:2016/05/15 The best thing Kitami has to offer?
I dont necessarily look back at my 6 months in Kitami with regret (since I made some memorable acquaintances there), but to say the city is lacking in entertainment would be an all-time...
Reviewed:2019/07/18 レンタサイクルがおすすめ
サロマ湖の東側に広がる原生花園です。広大な敷地に遊歩道が整備されているので、ネイチャーセンターで自転車を借りてまわるのがおすすめです。
Reviewed:2019/07/18 レンタサイクルで散策します!
サロマ湖とオホーツク海を挟んで大きき広がる自然公園の様な場所ですので、受付でレンタサイクルを借りました。一人650円でした。自転車を利用しても往復で一時間弱かかりますので時間に余裕が無いと無理でしょう。しかし、訪れたのが7月7日でしたが、花が咲き終わってしまったのか、それとも今から咲いてくるのか分かりませんでした。ハマナスの花がし腰だけ咲いているような感じでした。

          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.
