Let's explore the picturesque Biei and Furano by train and taxi


This tour is suitable for travelers who have the Japan Rail Pass, because the transportation method is train and taxi. We use the train between Sapporo and Asahikawa, and we do sightseeing in Biei and Furano by taxi. ( a sedan taxi, if you want a jumbo taxi I will make a customized tour)
Biei is a small town surrounded by a picturesque hilly landscape. Professionals in particular have been attracted by the stunning scenery in this area. Some trees such as a poplar, oaks and larches were used in commercials or for package label designs. Recently the Blue Pond has become famous because of its bright blue color.
Furano is well known throughout Japan as a tourism destination. It is famous for its lavender fields, the television drama Kita no Kuni kara and the Furano Ski Resort.
Let's explore the picturesque Biei and Furano together by taxi.
