« on: Sat Jun 24, 2017, 11:43 AM »
Title & Date]: 16th to 22th of July, Summer vacation in Hokkaido!!

Public transportation in Hokkaido is not as convenient as that of Tokyo. It would be best to go around by car. Furano is the area that is quite easily accessible even by bus and train. Let's explore the beauty of Furano.

1. Lavender fields in Furano
Farm Tomita- Full bloom in July

One of the volcanic mountains located in Daisetsu National Park (1912m). The moutain is famous for alpine flowers and selected as best 100 mountains for flowers.
