Gyokusenkan Park

Gyokusenkan Park is a nearby park that is beautiful in the summer when everything is green and in bloom. I’m glad that it’s so close!

It’s closed during the winter months when tons of snow falls in Iwamizawa. Lately the gardeners have been tying the trees together. I’m not sure what this process is called, but according to some internet searching there is more than one name for this. Yuki-tsuri and yuki-gakoi are two names I found. Yuki-gakoi might be what they call it in Hokkaido.
