Shichiku Garden is a sightseeing flower garden located in Tokachi Heiya's rural districts at the outskirts of Obihiro City, Hokkaido. Within the grounds, around 2,500 kinds of flowers and assorted trees native to Hokkaido grow over the course of all four seasons. Made to represent the memories and feelings of playing carefree in fields as a child, Shichiku Garden has become quite popular, with over 100,000 people visiting each year. Visitors to the garden can pass the time leisurely not just looking at flowers, but also feeling the pleasant breeze, listening to the chirping of small birds, or taking a nap in a lawn chair. An experience that definitely can't be had in an urban area, take a visit to feel the pleasant sense of space and freedom unique to Hokkaido.
Yayoinoyu Onsen is a natural day-spa onsen located about 15 minutes by car from Obihiro Station. At this onsen, the hot spring comes bubbling up from 1,600 meters below the earth, and the sodium chloride content in the water is easy on the skin. Sodium chloride springs have heat-retaining benefits, which is an especially attractive feature for people who are sensitive to cold. Here, visitors can refresh themselves from the fatigue of sightseeing through many different kinds of baths, including tub baths, sleeping baths, cave onsen, and stone baths, as well as exfoliating beauty treatments and chiropractic massages. After relaxing in the onsen, we recommend tasting dishes that use Hokkaido-local rice nanatsuboshi.
