This forest of approximately 10 hectares neighbors a residential district. A walking trail about 1 km long descends into the valley, providing chances to visit the forest's remarkable trees, including giant Mongolian oak of over 400 years and very large Japanese elm. In early spring, skunk cabbages bloom amidst a miniature wetland, and late May is the best time to observe large colonies of trillium camschatcense. Facilities include a gazebo and toilets, making this vibrant forest park a favorite among nature-loving Kushiro locals.
