This is a small garden that's kind of hidden, but can be found readily using your GPS and their phone number if you have a rental car. There is a small fee for entry, but we felt it was worth it, especially after our disappointment with the botanical gardens in Sapporo. The flowers here are enormous and plentiful. There is also a short walk up a hill to get a view of Daisetsuzan National Park and the surrounding agricultural fields. There is also a little cafe and gift shop inside for those of you with a green thumb. Well worth a short visit if you're in the area.

Also called Hokkaido Garden, it is a privately owned English-style garden open to the public for an entrance fee of 800 yen. It's a 15-minute drive from the Asahiyama Zoo. It is along the road but in the midst of vast rice fields. Visiting in the second week of September, some of the flowers were not at their best and a rainy late afternoon was not the best time to visit. But the explosion of colors from the huge variety of plants and blooms was amazing and impressive for a garden/plant/flower lover like myself. It reminds me of a Monette painting. If I am in Hokkaido in the summer (July-August) during the Garden Show I would like to see the garden in its glory. Public transportation access: from Sapporo (or from Asahikawa) take Sekihoku Line to Sakuraoka Station then it's a 15-minute walk or take Shuutani Line to Nagayama Station and then10 minutes by taxi. For non-Japanese tourist, best to take a tourist bus.

Beautiful garden with with lovely flowers. Both adults and kids enjoyed it. We especially loved the rainbow chairs on the hill. It was a breezy day and a little cloudy but the view from the hill was excellent. We didn't try the food at the cafe though. The entrance price is a bit expensive but we didn't regret it.

Pleasant if fairly small English-style garden with a hill-top viewpoint. Adult entry is ¥500 and the "farm" is accessible via the (¥800) loop bus. Primary schoolers get in free. An annual pass ("garden passport") is ¥700. Worth the price, but not a must-see.

This place is a little out of town. I took bus 666 at Bus Stop 18, 2 blocks away from Asahikawa station paying 600 yen for the 1/2 hour ride. This is more of a garden rather than a farm. Many varieties of flowers are grown there including some of those commonly found growing wildly in this part of Hokkaido. The place is nice and pretty plus good to stroll around to enjoy the flowers. I climbed the hill on my last leg in the garden and walla...it revealed a majestic 360 panoramic view of the farmland around! Thats worth my trip here!

It was a cloudy day expecting shower. Anyway we decided to go and there was light shower as we reached the destination. The entrance fee 800 Yen is quite expensive for a small garden as we have been to many larger gardens with free entrance.
Despite the fee, we were delighted to see so many species of unique and rare exotic flower and plant. It was quite an experience walking in the park on a showery day. It would have been a great view of the mountain from the garden if not of the cloud cover.

A small colorful and peaceful garden with a cafe and tourist shop. Definitely bring your camera. You can stroll around and take pictures then relax on one of the garden chairs. This was another enjoyable stop via The Fun Fun Bus.

We visited in early September and unfortunately the lavender had gone. There was still plenty to see though and we easily enjoyed spending 1.30hr here seeing many varieties of flowers with so many butterflies and dragonflies around. There were even some roosters roaming around. We took plenty of pictures here.

We had lunch there in NAYA cafe next door and they served a rather unique style of Japanese curry rice (more spicy than the usual), good tandoori pita and lovely salad.

Uneno Farm is about 20min drive from Asahikawa Station and close to the Asahikawa Zoo so you may want to combine both and have a more interesting lunch here. 800yen entrance fee for adults. If you are flower enthusiasts, probably a good idea to check ahead on the flower season and availability.

We couldn’t love this place any more!

The cafe food was simple and as fresh as you can get. I’m pretty sure the vegetables were picked minutes before they were served—really.

Even the milk in the ice cream tasted farm fresh. Well done and thank you!

The gardens are a treat as well!

This is a small but lovely English garden. We spent about one hour here and that was more than adequate. I would imagine the flowers would be more vibrant in late summer. Nevertheless, it is still worth the visit
