Miharashi Park Revisited Summer 2022

I have already visited Miharashi Park (見晴公園) thrice. The first one was during winter, November 28, 2021 (Sunday), and the second one was in spring a few weeks back, April 30, 2022 (Saturday). Since the park was just a few kilometers away from my place, I get to easily see how it changes during the different seasons.

I went back to visit Miharashi Park again last June 4, 2022 (Saturday), my 31st weekend here in Hokkaido as an ALT under the JET Programme. This time, it was already the start of summer. For this trip, I went to revisit with my family. 

Miharashi Park details


For those who are unfamiliar with Miharashi Park, it is located at 2 Chome Miharashicho, Rumoi City, Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan. It is one of the city's many parks. The D613 locomotive engine is the most popular attraction in the park.

On January 26, 1945, the Kasado Factory produced the D613 locomotive engine. Its principal role was to carry coal from the Haboro Mine, traversing a total distance of 2,272,955 kilometers throughout its operating history.

This old steam engine was ultimately retired on April 30, 1973, and then relocated to its current place in Miharashi Park, Rumoi City.

Overall, we didn't stay long as we were actually going to Reuke Farm which is several kilometers away. Regardless, Miharashi Park in summer is something worth seeing. The foliage was so green and the smell of grass was very noticeable. Hopefully, I get to see Miharashi Park in autumn to finally see it in all 4 seasons.

Miharashi Park Operating Hours

Miharashi Park is open 24/7. However, it is not recommended to visit very late at night particularly during winter as the area is not well-lit. 

Why visit Miharashi Park?

Summer is the best time to go on a picnic in Miharashi Park. There are also a lot of dragonflies and butterflies in the park so bringing your kids along would also be a good idea.
