Postcard-perfect Scenery of Flower Garden Tour


In recent years, Furano and Biei have become enormously popular destinations for foreign visitors from overseas. This top-selling tour takes you to some of the famous sightseeing spots such as the hilly district in Biei. You will be overwhelmed by the vast beautiful landscape in the perfect time. You will first visit the flower gardens of Farm Tomita and Shikisaino-Oka while enjoying the beautiful scenery of seasonal followers such as lavender which blooms in late June from the bus, not to mention the Ken and Mary Tree, Tree of Seven Stars, Parent and Child Tree, Patchwork Road and much more.  

The bus continues on to “Campana Rokkatei” which sells sweets made by Rokkatei. From the building on a hill, the Tokachidake Mountain Range can be seen.
You can also see grape fields that spread over an area of roughly 82,500 square meters along the foothills and visit the gallery ”Kamigami no Asobu Niwa” where you can find the works of Naoyuki Sakamoto and Kyuichiiro Aihara who drew the Taisetsu Mountain Range.
For lunch, we will have Japanese, Chinese and Western buffet at “New Furano Prince Hotel.” This is the location for the TV drama “Kaze no Garden”, commemorating the 50th anniversary of Fuji Television Network. Ningle Terrace is shown on the long-running TV drama “Kita no Kuni Kara”. You will have enough time to look around here and enjoy the lovely view and the delicious meals.
