I planned to do a day trip to Yubetsu Tulip Park from Asahikawa on 7 Jun 2012. From this forum, I learnt that I can perhaps visit the pink moss park on the same day on way to Yubetsu. It will be either:
http://www.shibazakura.net/ (Shibazakura Park)
…hokkaido.jp/02hana/phlox/kouen.html (Takinoue Park)
Apparently, Takinoue Park is nearer to Asahikawa. However, from the Asahikawa Tourism website (asahikawa-tourism.com/asahikawa/asahikawa_sp…), Takinoue Pink Moss Park has been removed from its bus tour this year and they have replaced it with Higashi Mokoto Pink Moss.
1) Is Takinoue Park closed?
2) Are Higashi Mokoto Pink Moss and Shibazakura Park the same park?
3) I have checked the website and Higashi Mokoto Park Moss is in Abashiri. As I will be driving from Asahikawa as a day trip, will it be too far to travel back from there?
4) If Takinoue Park is not closed, which will be nicer to visit - Takinoue Park or Higashi Mokoto Pink Moss (provided the distance is not too long)?
TIA for your advice.
