Enjoy the nature, which is typical of Hokkaido, and Ishikari Lighthouse, a symbol of Ishikari City.
180 kinds of beach plants grow naturally on the coastal topography called sand spit, which was formed over a long period of time by the intersection of the Sea of Japan and Ishikari River. A part of the site is also designated as a protected area of Ishikari City for beach plants. Ishikari Lighthouse, which stands at the entrance of the park and features red and white stripes, is a proof that a vast sand spit was gradually formed over 100 years by the flow of the river and the waves of the sea. In the park of about 46 hectares, you can enjoy a variety of flowers in each season such as ramanas rose, which is the origin of the park's name, viola grayi, beach pea, bindweed, lilium pensylvanicum, and solidago virgaurea. The best time to see ramanas rose is from late June to early July. You can feel the expression of the seasons that change from season to season as well as early summer. Many locals frequently visit this park that is also popular as a bird watching spot and a wide variety of wild birds come to all the year round such as larks, Japanese bush warbler, and eagles. ''Hamanasunooka Park Visitor Center'', which has a resting space, sells Ishikari's special products and ramanas rose related products. What we particularly recommend is the Original Hamanasu Soft Serve, which is pale pink, and has an elegant scent of ramanas rose. Please enjoy the popular taste while feeling the booming of the sea and the pleasant sea breeze of Ishikari Beach.
