It was a nice tour. Tips for those taking this tour, wear shoes. Your feet will get really dirty. Bring also something to wipe your face with. During our trip, it was very windy and dusty. Our white shoes/ sandals turned brown 😅 the flowers are beautiful, but expect a lot of people.
The tour guide is good, but I found it hard to understand his English. His main language is Chinese and Japanese.
For the buffet lunch, it was just a regular lunch/menu, only buffet style. The melons are sweet, not so sure if they are really the expensive ones.
When we arrived at Furano from Otaru, all we saw were bare or green fields. Our expectations were not high so we were extremely delighted to see brightly coloured flowers at Farm Tomita. Rows and rows of neatly planted flowers in rainbow hues greeted us. It is the first time we have seen such a colourful field. The place is huge and colorful with many kinds of flowers. Better spend more time there. I believe most of the time should be crowd with tourists. Parking was adequate in the vicinity and there were cafes selling lavender ice cream and souvenir stores. It is just next to the Melon place .

of Tomita Farm came here at the end of July for lavender. If it is possible to come in early August, it is very likely that lavender has been harvested. Furano's climate is similar to that of Provence in the south of France, so in 1955 it began to grow lavender to extract flavors. Later, because of the popularity of artificial spices, the farmer who cultivated lavender was drastically reduced, and only Fukuda Tadao of Fukuda Farm was left. Just as he was about to give up, a photographer took pictures of the lavender fields and attracted a large number of tourists to visit.
You can make your own lavender pillows, buy a variety of lavender products, and taste delicious lavender ice cream.
Although it can be seen from the photos that this flower field is not large, so everyone is shooting at the same angle. But really standing there still feels the beauty of dreams.
