Cherry Picking - Memories to Cherish
Hokkaido surely offers stunning nature to see, but how about an opportunity to taste the freshly-picked fruit? This morning tour will take you to the Asahikawa's famous cherry field for all-you-can-pick & eat experience, and Kamui Kotan, Ainu's sacred place of their God. For a snack, you will be provided with locally-produced, fresh-cooked corn to sweeten your memory.
Cherry, the King of Summer Fruits
Asahikawa is the treasure box of crops and cherry is one of our summery gems. This Hokkaido cherry field is magnificent, so don’t worry, you will never run out of cherries! They offer “Satonishiki” known for its sweetness and “Suimon” with refined sourness. The garden master will help you pick the best kind of the day.
Corn You Won't Forget
The traffic on the Route 12 was much busier before the time of highways. Along the route had been filled with street vendors and drive-ins. We will stop at one of the long-standing corn shops that has remained in business since the Showa era. You will be surprised by the sweetness of their corn, cooked all at once in a huge pot. You do not want to leave Asahikawa without trying this!
History, Lives, and Legends
Sheer wall of rock, rapid current, and the old steam locomotive. Kamui Kotan holds many stories and legends for its geographical features and extreme climates. Rise of the continental plate occurred in this area 160 million years ago, and there have been evidences of remains, which prove that Ainu people lived here from 12 million years ago. We will take you through this mysterious and historic area.
