A Fall Foliage Viewing Spot in Hokkaido: Fukuhara under Clear Blue Sky, a Private Garden Open to the Public Only in the Season for Viewing Fall FoliageRead Later
In Hokkaido’s Tokachi, there is one scenic maple viewing spot that is known to a few people, which covers a large area of about 85,000 m2 and where more than 5000 maple trees are planted. It is Fukuhara Mountain Villa, which is affectionately nicknamed the “beautiful fall colors of Tokachi in Hokkaido” by the locals.
An amazing photo arrived from my friend in the Tokachi District of Hokkaido!
It was of Hokkaido’s winter miracle scene, “jewelry ice.”
In recent years, its beauty has come to the attention of the world at large; many tourists are visiting Hokkaido to see this picturesque view.
In 2007, the Tokachi Millennium Forest opened Japan’s first Segway tours.
(The Segway is an American-invented electronic two-wheeled standing-ride vehicle.)
So that even first-time riders can safely maneuver their Segway, the tour begins with an explanation of how to operate the Segway and some practice time.
Once everyone is able to ride their Segway, it’s off to the course!
