Takinoue is a scenic town in northern Hokkaido, Japan. It is located between Monbetsu and Asahikawa, and is surrounded by mountains on four sides. It is only 40 minutes from the Sea of Okhotsk, and Takinoue and its surrounding area offers stunning scenery and wilderness. It is full of unspoiled nature, from the beautiful forests to the rivers full of rainbow trout.
Takinoue is most famous for shibazakura- a pink, flowered moss that blooms across the hillside every spring. The vibrant shibazakura park is visible from all over Takinoue. In addition to this, Takinoue is also known for herbs, fishing, and turkeys! There is a lot to do and see, and something for everyone in Takinoue. We hope to see you soon!
