Hokkaido Summer Retreat (Biei/Furano/Tomamu) – Day 3(b)

Farm Tomita
Final stop for our flowers expedition in Hokkaido would be Farm Tomita, the largest lavender farm in Japan.

They have a huge area of lavender and other flowers. Good place for your to spend 1-2 hours here.

We were there late July which was almost the end of the lavender season.

Of course, lots of lavender related products on sale including food.

Pear
Oh, did we spotted a pear?

1 stalk of dried lavender is around 150JPY but you cannot bring plants back on a plane as most countries are pretty strict with the mports of plants and animals.

The famous Irodori field where you get to see the rainbow colored flowers.

Lavendar Cake

Popura Farm
Just 5 minutes drive away would be this popular dessert store.

Half a melon with ice cream is 1200JPY.

Half a cut of Furano melon topped with super creamy ice cream. Dig in this dessert just right for summer.
