The Biggest Tomato Plant in the World
Sep 2019 • Friends
We came to see the English garden, recommended by a friend. First we enjoyed a good coffee in the cafe area (¥300 each), then we saw and photographed the Biggest Tomato Plant in the World. It certainly lived up to its reputation. We admired the kitchen gardens around this area, and looked at the garden centre. This was interesting and beautifully laid out. Preparations were in hand for the 3-day weekend starting on Saturday 21 September. Looks like fun, but we have other plans involving an odd-shaped ball.
Our friend drove us round to the English garden but we felt that ¥1000 each was too much to pay. But we had thoroughly enjoyed the time we had spent on the property and would like to come back some day.

One of my best memories of Hokkaido
Oct 2018 • Couples
Some of my fondest memories of Hokkaido were created in Ecorin Village. My husband and I had so much fun during the farm animal encounters. There were sheep, goats, alpacas, llamas,pigs,cows, etc. We enjoyed watching the sheepdog show and the sheep race. The animals were clean and well-cared for. Staff were very friendly. There was one staff who spoke very good English and she was fun to talk with. A tractor ride took us around the farm.
After this,we went to the Galaxy gardens. It felt like springtime in autumn while we were there. There are lots of photo-taking opportunities and instagrammable spots in the gardens. While you're there,don't forget to taste their rose flavored ice cream. I'm kind of surprised there are very few people when we were there. I mean,good for us though, since we felt like we were on a private tour away from the horde of tourists. But honestly,this place deserves more visits. Gotta warn you though, dude at the information center (located inside the shop) didn't speak english. I know a bit of japanese coz i studied it but im honestly too scared to use it during a conversation. I only use it during truly desperate times haha anyway, so glad they called a guy who spoke some english and he pointed us toward the direction of the midori ranch. I love that the staff are very helpful,really.
Buy some of the tomato flavored chips and rose jam as souvenirs. I miss those. :(

Ok to visit but not a must. The village actually create different theme. But if you are visiting Farm Tomita, I suggest u may skip this.

For animal and plant lovers
Jun 2017 • Family
We were introduced to this by the tourist information. This is a gem forgotten by non japanese tourist.

It is actually 2 farms. One with animals and the other more for flowers and fruits.

The farm charges ¥1200 per adult but children go in for free! Each paying adult can bring 5 kids. There is a sheep and dog show, a sheep race, a farm tour and sheep feeding. For a fee of ¥1000, kids can also DIY their own plush toy sheep or alpacas.

The flower and fruit farm has a supermarket selling all things flora. Here you can see the world's record holding tomato plant. There are also lovely flowers and garden.

There is a hotdog (¥500) and ice cream (¥300) shack selling alpaca ice cream at the farm. At the flower place, there is a posh restaurant called 'Ten-Man'. At the flower supermarket, they also sell tomato.ice cream and chips.

Very good for 2-3 hours for kids and flower flowers.

We felt VERY pleased, moved and happy!
Aug 2012 • Family
A few days ago my children and I drove from Sapporo to Eniwa, Hokkaido. It is an easy one hour drive. We parked (free) near a shopping center that sells the most wonderful selection of plants, garden tools, textiles, garden pavers, and home decor. Visiting just this shopping center would have been worth the trip. If you are looking for souvenirs from Hokkaido, go to Eniwa (for many garden inspired decor items, wall art, etc.), Art Park in Sapporo (for modern design in various media) and Otaru (for glass). We had our lunch at a restaurant named Camel near the stores -- large windows with bucolic views, good to very good food, and very friendly atmosphere. They had a kids menu, which my kids were very pleased with -- pastas, salads, desserts, burgers and more.
After lunch we went to the ticket office, about 4 minutes walk down the country road, to arrange our farm tour. We passed the cows on our right and enjoyed excellent views and fragrant air. The ticket of 1200 Yen covered the tractor pulled wagon tour, farm animal show, and access to a beautiful garden. Kids go in free and get a yellow quacking contraption that they use with joy to their parents' despair. Just kidding, it is actually quite cute but, yes, loud. The tour takes you to various animal runs. You get to pet and feed alpacas, sheep, goats, ponies, and dogs, and watch pigs and lamas from a safe distance. We missed the sheep dog show, but toured the premises and talked to the trainer, Ryoji-san, who could not have been any nicer. Sensing our interest, he organized a mini show for us and several other families. He speaks English and offers a wealth of information about the farm, dogs, and many other things. Look him up when you are there and need some translation. Last but not least, we went to the garden. It is the most generous garden I have ever been to. Every curve of the path offers beautiful plants and charming secluded structures to enter and enjoy. This is why I call this park generous. You feel there as if somebody made a special effort to please you, to offer you your own little oasis to rest in -- tree houses, doll houses, secluded benches, flower-covered gazebos and arbors. My kids loved the garden as well. The play ground was a great hit. We are definitely going back! In fact, the kids wanted to go back the next day, but we will wait maybe a week. Did I mention all terrain vehicles (did not try this time) and a sale at stores? I am making it a bit too exciting a busy. This park is foremost peaceful, happy and beautiful.
I have not looked at their web page yet, but I would like to learn more about upcoming events. The Japanese pamphlet indicates that there is something going on every month.
The pamphlet also indicates that you can take a train from Sapporo and a bus from the station.

Fantasy gardens in the Hokkaido countryside.
Jul 2011 • Solo
A good day out for gardeners, families with kids, walkers and anyone just looking for a bit of peace and quiet. 10 years ago farmland was transformed into 30 themed gardens by British designer Bunny Guinness. The area is dotted with fantastical buildings (as if the Hobits have just popped out) and sculptures, there are llamas and alpacas, a sheepfarm, restaurants and a garden center including a vast tomato tree - ONE tree - that grows in water and produces thousands of fruit.
