Asahiyama Memorial Park

Asahiyama Memorial Park:1 Asahiyama Memorial Park:2 Asahiyama Memorial Park:3

This park located on a nearby hillside neighboring Mt. Moiwa is a popular sightseeing spot approximately 20 minutes from the city center by car. Tourists and even many local couples and families visit this spot,a popular local place to relax,to see the night views. From the observatory at an altitude of 137.5m,visitors can see a panoramic view of the city. Visitors can enjoy the night views with a sense of comforting familiarity. Here,the distance between the hilltop and the city somehow seems closer,in contrast to the dramatic impact of looking down from a higher point. With the fountain in the center of the park and the well-lit stairs along the slope,the atmosphere is top-notch. The structural beauty of the expansive panorama with the symbolic fountain in the background and a leisurely environment where time passes slowly contribute to making this what might be called the city’s most soothing spot.

Take the JR Hokkaido Bus Asahiyama-koen Line (Maru 13) from “Maruyama Koen” Station on the subway Tozai Line,and walk approximately 4 minutes (to the rest house).
