Kitami City, an attractive tourist destination in the eastern part of Hokkaido, was created 2006 (Heisei 18) the merger of Kitami City, Hatano Town, Tokoro Town, and Rubeshibe Town. In the future, this account will introduce plenty of charms of Kitami City! Thank you in advance. Kitami is the largest city in the Okhotsk region. It is home to about 120,000 people. The climate and weather in Kitami City are mild with little influence from typhoons and the rainy season. In addition, the average temperature is basically low throughout the year, and in winter the minimum temperature can be minus 30 degrees Celsius, but in summer it can be more than 30 degrees Celsius due to the fane phenomenon. For access to Kitami City, Hokkaido, we recommend using Memanbetsu Airport. It takes about 45 minutes from New Chitose Airport to Memanbetsu Airport. It takes about 1 hour and 50 minutes from Haneda Airport to Memanbetsu Airport, and about 2 hours and 30 minutes from Kansai International Airport to Memanbetsu Airport. In addition, you can get to Kitami City from Memanbetsu Airport in about 40 minutes by car or bus. Kitami City is full of sightseeing spots full of attractions. Next, we will introduce carefully selected sights from among them. Kitami City has the world's longest history of mint production from the Taisho era to the early Showa era. The "Kitami Mint Memorial Museum" is a museum that tells the history of the museum. Videos of Kitami Thin-Loaded and a diorama of the Kitami Thin-Cargo Factory, the only mint refining factory built in Hokkaido, are on display. In addition, at the adjacent "Thin Cargo Distillery Hall", mint distillation demonstrations are held, and you can actually experience the scent of mint. There is also a herb garden around the memorial hall, where you can enjoy about 70 kinds of seasonal scents. The Pearson Memorial Hall, which was selected as a Hokkaido Heritage Site in 2001, was the last base of activities of Mr. and Mrs. Pearson, American missionaries who worked for the development of Hokkaido during the Taisho era. The memorial, where the Pearsons lived for 15 years, is now open to the public as a place to preserve the records of their pioneering. Through the historical buildings and exhibits, please enjoy the culture and history of Kitami City! An indispensable spot when traveling is a roadside station. At Roadside Station Onneyu Onsen, you can enjoy meals made with local ingredients while soaking in the hot springs to heal the fatigue of your trip.

The historic mansion built by one master at that time over a period of three years is a must-see. The precious natural park "Tokoro Ruins Forest" where the ruins of the Jomon period remain is also a spot where you can feel the history of Kitami City!

In the "Tokoro Center for Buried Cultural Properties" section of the park, models of the houses and lifestyles at that time are exhibited. Outside, the pit dwelling building has also been restored. "North Fox Farm" where you can interact with adorable red foxes is also a popular tourist attraction! It is the only zoo in Japan where red foxes and Ezo raccoon dogs coexist in free-range areas. Please spend a heartwarming time interacting with foxes nurtured in a natural environment. If you want to heal the fatigue of your trip, we recommend the Onneyu Onsen area, a hot spring village that spreads around the roadside station Onneyu Onsen!

It is conveniently located about 10 minutes by car from Asahikawa Airport to the center of Higashikawa Town. Higashikawa Town, Hokkaido is a town without a water supply, which is rare in Japan. The beautiful natural water created by the snowmelt of the Daisetsuzan mountain range seeps deep underground and is used as water for daily life in the town, restaurants, and various other places. In agriculture, delicious rice and vegetables are grown using the abundant water resources, and the taste is exceptional. One of the attractions of Higashikawa Town in Hokkaido is its proud hot springs. In Higashikawa Town, Hokkaido, there are two hot spring resorts, Asahidake Onsen and Tenjinkyo Onsen, both of which are located in Daisetsuzan National Park. The facilities around Asahidake Onsen do not have a hot spring town, and the scenery is maintained, such as height restrictions and regular intervals. Day trip bathing is also possible, so please stop by when climbing or hiking. While soaking in the hot springs, you can spend a luxurious time admiring the natural scenery.

Tokachigawa Onsen Tourist Association
Jul. 5, 2023
【Moor Hot Spring Firefly Viewing】 Glowworms grown in the water of the Mole hot spring perform a dance of light. In the past, I was able to see fireflies around Tokachigawa Onsen. However, with the modernization of the city, the environment in which fireflies can live has decreased, and it is no longer possible to see fireflies at the end of the 1990 (Heisei 2) summer. The purpose of the revival of the firefly at Tokachigawa Onsen is to bring back the early summer scene that was previously common. One of the major features of the regeneration of fireflies is the use of hot spring water as a water source, and the spring quality of Tokachigawa Onsen is a rare "plant-based mall hot spring" in the world that contains a lot of plant components. Because it contains plant components, it contains a lot of minerals that are essential for the reproduction of diatoms, which are food for snails. This is the first time in Japan that fireflies have been successfully regenerated using 100% hot spring water. Heike fireflies were distributed from Kyushu to Hokkaido, Eastern Siberia and Korea, and inhabited many waterside environments surrounding wetlands and rice paddies. The characteristic of Hokkaido's fireflies is that the interval between their emission tends to be longer than that of fireflies in Honshu. Period:7/8(Sat)~7/23(Sun) Time: 20:00~21:00 Location: Tokachigaoka Park

The ears usually begin to change color in mid-September, and are in full bloom around early October ~ late November. Not only in the daytime, but also in the sunset and the scenery sparkling is not to be missed. "Soni Kogen Onsen Okame no Yu" is a popular day-trip natural hot spring that was selected as the first place in the middle Japan hot spring tour. It is located about 4 minutes by car from the Soni Highlands, so why not stop by when you visit the Soni Highlands? You can enjoy the open-air bath with panoramic views and the hot spring baths in the wooden and stone bathrooms. In addition, at the Soni Kogen Farm Garden, which is adjacent to the Soni Kogen Onsen Okame no Yu, you can buy local specialties and locally caught vegetables. We also recommend lunch at a natural restaurant and original beer at the attached beer brewery "Mugi-no-kan". The campsite "Sun Village Soji" is also popular for its well-equipped facilities. There are 11 powered lawn sites and cottages, so you can enjoy your private space. It is about 10 minutes by car from Kame-no-yu and about 90 minutes from Osaka City, making it easy to access. ◆Soni Highland◆ 【Address】〒633-1202 Nara-ken, Uda District, Soni Village Tara Road 【Access】By car: Meihan National Highway I.C., about 45 minutes via Haibara 【Parking lot】Available for 150 cars (Please see the official website for details.) )
