It is the "Nayoro Sightseeing & Town Planning Association" of Nayoro City, Hokkaido.
Nayoro City is located in the northern part of Hokkaido and is known as a production area for glutinous rice, which boasts the largest acreage in Japan, and asparagus, which boasts one of the largest yields in Hokkaido.
Since it is located in the north of Hokkaido, where the cold is severe, the temperature is low throughout the year, especially the average temperature in January -8.6°C and the average temperature in February is -14.9°C, which is the lowest among Japanese cities.
At the dawn of the cold winter season, the water vapor in the air freezes into small ice crystals, and you can see the fantastic scenery "diamond dust" that glitters in the sun.
You can also experience the Sun Pillar, where the reflection of the diamond dust light looks like a pillar, in Nayoro City.
We will introduce the highlights, sightseeing spots, popular gourmet food, etc. of Nayoro Town at once.
First of all, I would like to introduce the "Nayoro City North Country Museum".
