Held from early May to early June
Shibazakura Takinoue Park is one of the most well-known spots to see shibazakura, known as moss phlox, in Hokkaido, and one of the largest spans of the flowering plant in Japan. The delightfully colorful panoramic view of the mountainside covered in stunning pink and purple flowers is a sight to behold. The Takinoue Moss Phlox Festival, held at the peak of moss phlox season between May and June, celebrates the sweet-smelling blooms by offering helicopter rides to visitors. From the sky, patrons can gaze upon the dreamy blossoms before or after indulging in local snacks and souvenirs.
