For two contrasting gardens in one large space, come visit Daisetsu Mori no Garden

By Elizabeth Sok

Located on Hokkaido’s Taisetsu mountain range, Daisetsu Mori no Gardens comprises two interconnected gardens. With each having its own unique character, you’ll be able to get two experiences for the price of one.

The first garden at Daisetsu Mori no Gardens is Mori no Gaihinkan. Trees and wildflowers populate this garden. Although the grounds have been carefully designed by Kozaburo Ryu, the atmosphere of this garden is intended to feel natural and timeless. Coming from the main entrance to Daisetsu Mori no Garden, you’ll pass through the Forest Gateway. Here, you’ll walk into the forest and the ever-darker greens that call the space home.

The Forest Carpet retains some of the vegetation that existed prior to the garden alongside the flowers and subtle colorful plants that have since been added. The Forest Living Room marries the idea of your personal home with the natural beauty of the Taisetsu Highlands. Situated at the other end of Mori no Geihinkan, the Forest Museum houses over 70 varieties of plant life found throughout Hokkaido. Stroll through this serene space and enjoy the peacefulness that comes with it.
