    Stop At: Farm Tomita, 15 Kisenkita, Nakafurano-cho, Sorachi-gun 071-0704 Hokkaido

    When you visit Furano, this is one place you must visit! This is where lavender has been produced since 1958. It is currently a traditional lavender field. This is a place that came to be known through the JR yearly calendar when JR still went by a different name.

    It is especially beautiful because of the 7 colors of flower that are produced together creating a rainbow. These are the purple lavender, the white baby’s breath, the orange California poppies and others. This is the view that will come to one the most when they remember Furano.

    4km away from this farm you will find “Lavender East” where you will find fields of just lavender and it is absolutely beautiful. This only happens in July so be sure to be here at the right time of year.

    Be sure to stop by the gift shop for lavender to take home with you! We can recommend first thing in the morning to view the flowers in relative peace.

The spacious gardens are wonderful for walking through as well but you can also choose to use the tracker bus used by over 300,000 other people each year.

    You can also enjoy making pillows with lavender or making flower pressed postcards. This is great with or without kids!
