Shichiku Garden is a popular sightseeing garden located about 20 km south-southwest of the center of Obihiro city.

In 1989, Shichiku Akiyo who was a nice old lady constructed this garden when she was 63 years old.

She said in an interview.

Her husband had passed away, so she did nothing but cry.
But, she thought that she had to do something she likes.
That was to grow wild flowers.
So, she created the flower garden in very wide land...

In the garden of about 5 hectares, there are about 12 types of gardens.

There is a restaurant in the garden.

This garden opens from late April to November.
