Futami Jozan-no-michi," a walking path along the Toyohira River, is a spot where visitors can casually stroll through the forest. This is a rich forest where about 200 kinds of wildflowers grow wild depending on the season, including the Ezo-no-hanashinobu, a flower that represents Jozankei (around June to July), and rare and precious species such as the "Jozan shijimi" and the "shimaenaga".
