Pond Adorned by Water Lilies
Water lilies are in full bloom at the pond of Hachironuma Park in southern Hokkaido’s Hokuto City. Vibrant pink blossoms and green leaves adorn the pond surface.
Blooming began in early June, as usual. Visitors can enjoy them until August.
There are large clusters of flowers at the foot of the bridge that crosses the pond. Visitors gaze at and take pictures of the water lilies. “There are more blossoms than I expected. They are very beautiful,” a housewife from Hakodate City said with a smile.
