Shibazakura is not a rare flower in Hokkaido. There are some places which are only famous for this beautiful flower and one of them is the Takinoue Park. It is a paradise of Shibazakura (pink moss phloxes) that hosts a yearly festival called Takinoue Shibazakura Matsuri. The festival usually begins in early May and ends its journey in early June. As soon as spring arrives in Hokkaido, the hillside of Takinoue Park turns to a magical place featuring millions of pink shibazakura (moss phloxes). Then it becomes one of the few best places in Hokkaido that should not be missed visiting during spring season.
