The Flower Fields of Biei

A panorama of flowers at Kanno Farm

By Amanda Ho    - 1 min read

Biei is known for its majestic flower hills. In Kamifurano Town, along the national road connecting Asahikawa and Furano, lies Kanno Farm, consisting of a garden and a flower field. Lavenders bloom from mid July to early August, while many other kinds of flowers can be seen until October. On a good day, the scenic Tokachi Mountain Range can be seen.

There is a cafe selling some of Hokkaido's favorite snacks such as butter corn, milk, and of course the most important when visiting a farm in Hokkaido, lavender ice cream. There is also a souvenir shop with a wide variety of lavender items.

The farm is 15 minutes from JR Bibaushi station, and 30 minutes from JR Furano station

I still clearly remember the day I first landed in Japan, and since then it has been my goal to set foot in all 47 prefectures. I try to look for less touristy areas, preferring the countryside to the city. I'm always amazed by the many Haagen Dazs and ice cream flavors available only in Japan.
