Moss Pink in Takinoue Park

Shibazakura (Pink Moss) in Takinoue Park

Takinoue Park in Takinoue Town (Takinoue-cho) is famous for moss pink, tiny flowers that spread for 100,000 m2. The flowers grew from a carton of seedlings to become the biggest moss pink community in Japan. The best season is from mid-May to early in June. Pink Moss Festival is held in mid May.

The Shibazakura (Pink Moss) Festival is one of the most unique and colorful festivals on the Hokkaido flower calendar. Winding paths lead you across a surreal pink and purple hillside overlooking Takinoue town.
