Check out the large hills on a tractor bus
There are many ways to stroll around the large Shikisai-no-oka not only on foot but also by a tractor bus, cart, or buggy car. In particular, we recommend the tractor bus that runs through the flower gardens. You can see Hokkaido's vast scenery of hills and mountains of the Daisetsu-zan (mountain range) as well as flower gardens on this bus.
Alpaca farm in Shikisai-no-oka offers you chances to feed cute alpacas and touch them. Fluffy alpacas are very popular among both kids and adults. Take a close look at them.
Recommended gourmet in Shikisai-no-oka
Don't miss these specialty croquettes in Shikisai-no-oka. There are two types of croquettes made from different potatoes harvested here, Danshaku and Kita-akari. Try both croquettes to compare the difference of the original taste between two potatoes.
You can see flowers from spring to autumn but unfortunately no flowers in the snowy winters. Instead, from early December to early April, you can enjoy winter sports like snowmobile, snow rafting, and sledding in the vast premises of Shikisai-no-oka.
