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. There, you will be overwhelmed by the vastness of the beautiful landscape during the best season. We will first visit the flower gardens of Farm Tomita and Shikisaino-Oka, while enjoying the beautiful scenery of lavender and other flowers from the bus.
Along the Road of Patchwork you can see Ken & Marry Tree, Seven Star Tree and Parent & Child Tree from the bus. 
Afterwards, we will have a buffet-styled lunch at New Furano Prince Hotel.  This was the location for filming the TV drama “Kaze no Garden”, which commemorated the 50th anniversary of Fuji Television Network, and the Ningle Terrace used by the characters in the TV drama “Kita no Kuni Kara,” can still be found. Enjoy the seasonal flowers in full bloom and the beautiful landscape of Hokkaido.
