About 50-60years ago, Dutch Tulips started to flood Japan’s market. Kamiyubetsu, a town which produced tulips at that time, was instantly thrown out of the competition~as the Dutch Tulips’ selling price was really low. However, the Japanese was (and still) so fond of this particular flora. Finally they decided to create a park and harvest breeds of Dutch and Japanese Tulips in this park, and now it became a huge tourist destination in Eastern Hokkaido. Best time to visit is April – May when it is blooming from 70-100%
