Tomita Farm Nakafurano

As far as day trip ideas from Asahikawa go, Tomita Farm is a great choice. A 10ha lavender paradise, Tomita Farm provides ample opportunity for relaxed walks surrounded by seemingly endless patchwork of color, so beautifully arranged and expertly manicured, that the hills seem almost artificial.

Beautiful birch-lined pathways provide comfortable shaded access to the many lavender gift shops, workshops, and rest stops scattered throughout the gardens. The workshops allow visitors to see first-hand how the harvested lavender is treated, worked, and turned into the countless lavender infused products available as elegant gifts and items for everyday use.

Lovers of sweets will be impressed by the lavender flavored soft-serve ice cream, pudding, and jelly found at the cafe, along with plenty of other light lunch options.

Nakafurano is about an hour south-east of Asahikawa by car and should definitely appear of any visitors itinerary.

Zerubu no Oka

Zerubu no Oka is a delightful little flower park about 40 minutes from Asahikawa along Route 237. A great spot to stop and see some fantastic scenery and colour when you're on the way to central Biei, Furano or further.



Furano is as much a stand-alone destination as it is a basis for accessing the many wonders of Hokkaido. With a diverse range of accommodation options and excellent adventure tour operators, Furano is a quality holiday destination all year round.



You can enjoy Biei throughout the year, with the snow-capped tips of the Taisetsuzan contrasting the bare soil in spring, beautiful flowers and blue sky in the summer, autumn leaves and bright yellow rape blossoms in fall, and pure white powder snow in winter...
