Tales of my Tongari town
vol.20 The best cherry blossom spot where everyone gathers
In 2019, we started the project “Team Tongari” in collaboration with Cape Erimo Tongari Road Wide-area Cooperation Council and Hokkaido Camera Girls’ Association.
Team Tongari has been working on a project to promote the charms of Urakawa, Samani, Erimo, and Hiroo through photography and words to supplement them.
“Team Tongari” was initiated by a group of camera-loving local girls.
23 women living in Tongari Road area have been taking photographs while rediscovering the beauty of their hometowns. “Tales of my Tongari town” is a new series of reports about the team’s recent discoveries of local gems of Tongari Road.
Starting from the 10th issue, we will introduce “people, objects, and things” that our members would like to recommend to you.
Tokachi Shrine has a history of well over 300 years.
Despite the shrine’s location in the city, deer congregate there in the very early morning.
There is also a small playground adjacent to the shrine. It is a wonderful place to enjoy the cherry blossoms where everyone, from children to the elderly, can get together.
Place：1-13, Moyoro, Hiroo-cho, Hiroo-gun, Hokkaido
The location information is also available on Google Map as “Tales of my Tongari town”!
