This is Tokachi Hills garden near Obihiro.
At the weekend I visited FIVE gardens in two days, driving myself and using a Hokkaido Garden Path Ticket.
I went to:
1) Tokachi Sennen no Mori Tokachi Millenium Forest.
2) Shichiku Garden
4) Manabe Garden
5) Tokachi Hills
Wow! Great - so beautiful and peaceful, and the gardens gave me many ideas for my garden in Hiragishi and any garden I make in the future.
Many of the gardens are British style - lawns and flowerbeds full of different layers and colors of flowers; kitchen gardens of vegetables and areas of grasses and trees. Each was different.
My favorite was Manabe Garden in the suburbs of Obihiro. Surprising, because there are not many flowers. It is mainly conifer trees and forest and water. But very peaceful.
