Hello COOL JAPAN VIDEOS viewers!
This is the Iwanai Tourism Association.
We will deliver tourist information and event information about Iwanai Town, Hokkaido.

This is my first post, and I will introduce Iwanai Town and sightseeing spots!

Iwanai, Hokkaido, is located in the western part of Hokkaido and is also famous as the birthplace of asparagus.
The name of Iwanai Town is said to be derived from the Ainu word "Iwau = sulfur, Nai = river".

The population is 11,173 (as of the end of August 2023 (Reiwa 5)), and the climate and weather are harsh in winter because it faces the Sea of Japan, but it is a relatively warm area in Hokkaido.
In addition, the average temperature in summer is about 25 degrees Celsius, and the maximum temperature is about 32 degrees Celsius.
In winter, the snowy scenery is attractive, and you can enjoy skiing and snowboarding.

Iwanai Town pumps "deep sea water" from the Sea of Japan and is used for local industry!
At the Iwanai Deep Sea Water Facility (Local Industry Support Center) in the town, it is possible to purchase Iwanai deep sea water for general use.
The mineral-rich deep sea water is perfect for cooking!
