Hi it's me Furano Guide(@Tripguide7777

Today, let me introduce you to more sight-seeing spots in the Furano-Biei Area

Farm Tomita is definitely the place you want to go in July!

I went to Farm Tomita at the peak of the lavender blooming season. This farm is very famous both inside and outside Japan!

 

How do we get to Farm Tomita?

From Asahikawa, take Route 237 following signs for Furano, specifically looking for Naka-Furano. You should arrive in Naka-Furano in a little over 1 Hour.

From Furano, take Route 237 following signs for Asahikawa. You should arrive in the next town, Naka-Furano, in a little less than 20 minutes.

 

Besides rental car, you can also take the bus or local train to Naka-Furano. On sunny days in the main summer season, I would definitely suggest the slow, sight-seeing train, Norokko-Gou and get off at the Lavender Farm stop (one stop AFTER the Naka-Furano stop from Furano).

Of course, with so many people around, it`s very usual to have a few strangers in your pictures.

While looking over the fields, I couldn`t help but think that out of all the people wandering the fields today, I`m probably the one closest to home.

 

After enjoying the fields of flowers, I went to go see what lavender goods are offered at the numerous shops, which are at and next to Farm Tomita.

Summary of Farm Tomita

There are a lot of people at Farm Tomita in July. I really suggest you leave extra time for navigating in and out of the parking lots, as they are also quite full and busy. Also, as a majority of the walking paths in and around the farm are dirt or gravel and there is also sometimes quite a hill to climb, I would suggest shoes that are easy to walk in.

I would also suggest you check this out and take it with you:
