After our breakfast at Nijo Fish Market in Sapporo, we set off to Furano & Biei. Furano (富良野) and Biei (美瑛) are towns in the centre of Hokkaido. The two towns are well known for their beautiful picturesque rural landscape. One can witness the beauty of lavender fields in July and other flowers such as sunflowers, lilies and poppies. During winter, this place turns into a popular place for winter sports.

Farm Tomita

2 hours away from Sapporo, we arrive at Farm Tomita in the afternoon. Farm Tomita, the popular lavender field in Hokkaido, is a popular spot for one to enjoy the view of lavender. Although the full bloom of lavender is during late July to August, there are other flowers while we were there. Despite the drizzle, my family and I had a great time walking and enjoying the colourful row of flowers. Oh, don’t forget to try the lavender ice cream! They are delicious!

Blue Pond
After the amazing trip to Farm Tomita, we visited the Blue Pond. The blue pond isn’t a popular place until recent years. The Blue Pond is a man-made pond in Biei to protect the town of Biei from volcanic mudflow. The colour was an accidental presence of colloidal aluminium hydroxide in the water. We arrived in the afternoon and was greeted by the amazing emerald blue shining on the pond. Do check out Shirahige Waterfall that is 5 minutes away from the Blue pond!
