Visit colorful flower gardens, panoramic hills and Blue Pond
The Furano and Biei area is one of the most popular tourist spots in Hokkaido. Located in the center of Hokkaido, the Furano area is well known for its beautiful lavender fields as well as for being one of the base of agriculture. The town of Biei features the fantastic "Blue Pond", Shirahige Falls (White Beard Falls) and a colorful flower garden, Shikisai no Oka.
You will visit these areas in comfortable private van. One of the specialties in Furano are melons which are juicy and sweet. Melon soft serve ice cream is very popular among tourists. In addition, you can find some confectioneries which use rich Hokkaido milk and cream in this area. On the way back to Sapporo, you will stop at "Campana Rokkatei" which is located at the hilltop vineyard.
