Plan introduction(1 day Bus Tour -Blue Pond, Farm Tomita, Rainbow Garden)
If you are struggling to make a plan to visit hot sightseeing spots as many as possible during your Hokkaido trip, this plan will definitely helpful.
We’ll start our day off in Furano, with an early lunch and the chance to buy local cheese, ice cream or other produce. Furano Marche opened about ten years ago with the concept of “spreading the beauty of Furano through food.”
Farmers’ markets and booths featuring regional produce are available in the product center, attracting many visitors from inside and outside Hokkaido alike.
At the second stop, Furano Cheese Factory, visitors can enjoy pizzas using freshly made cheese and milk ice made from locally sourced ingredients.
Afterwards, we’ll visit two lavender farms – the well known Farm Tomita , but also Choei Lavender Park and Nakafurano Flower Park.
Farm Tomita offers a grand, breathtaking, vibrant view of the lavender flower field. Regardless of which angle you take a picture from, you’re bound to get a memorable picture! Visitors from around the world will be visiting around this time, so Farm Tomita is bound to be a bit crowded. Let’s aim to find the best position within the gardens to take the best picture.
Finally, we’ll head down to Biei area for the late afternoon, to take in the Blue Pond and ever-beautiful Shirahige Falls.
The Blue Pond became famous worldwide since it was chosen as wallpaper for Apple Inc. Although It actually depends on several weather conditions if the lake looks bright blue like many photos, it is definitely worth visiting.
Shirahige Waterfalls is situated near the Shirogane Blue Pond. Underground water spews out from between the rocks and into the Biei River – it’s a sight that will surely stimulate all your senses.
The combination of Biei River’s cobalt blue beauty, the white splashes from the waterfall, and the surrounding green trees will surely look beautiful on camera but even more so to your own eyes!
Once you’ve visited the beautiful spots in Biei, we will take you back to Sapporo station.
