Hokkaido Gardens for creating northern garden culture

With the geographical characteristics taken into account, the gardens are designed to improve as they mature, and the staff will continually work to make them better in order to create Hokkaido-like large-scale gardens.

Entrance FOREST

Entrance FOREST

It used to be a dark, crowded forest with dense bamboo grass growing on the forest floor. Looking closely, we found pretty little flowers hidden amongst it. We cut the bamboo grass every year after those flowers have dropped their seeds. Four years have passed and the number of the flowers is increasing. The flowers of goatbeard and meadowsweet swaying in a breeze under the sunlight of late summer will captivate you.

Meadow GARDEN

Meadow GARDEN

Inspired by the nature of Tokachi, Dan Pearson designed this wild flower garden. This unique garden, so sensitive that you can enjoy not only the flowers but also the wind and sunlight on them, will grow to perfection.

Kitchen GARDEN

Kitchen GARDEN

In this garden just in front of the Garden Cafe, vegetables, herbs and fruit trees are grown. This healthy garden is intended to show the guests the connection between food and farming.

Earth GARDEN

Earth GARDEN

To this five-hectare rolling meadow, Tokachi’s bright sunlight gives a contrast of shadows, and winds from the forest sways the grasses. Here you can “feel” a landscape unique to Tokachi and Hokkaido, being surrounded and becoming a part of it.
