Shibazakura flowers "collaborate" with Mount Yotei scenery
The shibazakura (moss phlox) cared for by former farmer Mishima Kazuo in the town of Kutchan within Central Hokkaido’s Niseko region are popularly known as “Mishima’s Shibazakura Garden”. And the shibazakura flower viewing season has arrived again this year, with a virtual carpet of vivid flowers spreading out across the field and delighting the gaze of area residents.
Mishima started turning the former farming field into a garden in 2003. It is currently approximately 4,000 square meters in size. The walking path in the garden is open to the public free of charge, and is widely known as a sightseeing spot.
At the height of the blooming peak around May 30, pink, red, and white shibazakura flowers fully carpeted the garden ground surface and the sweet flower fragrance danced on the breeze.
