Furano / Biei / Sounkyo

An area near the very middle of Hokkaido. There are beautiful hills around Biei, famous lavender farms around Furano, and awe-inducing ravines around Sounkyo. Shikisai-no-oka in Biei and Farm Tomita in Furano are some of the area's largest gardens, with picture-perfect scenery. The area's fresh vegetables and Furano wine and cheese are some culinary highlights to look for. Asahigawa Airport is the quickest way to get around the area, but as the area is only a 2 to 3 hour drive from Sapporo, day-trips are also possible. Sounkyo is famed as a hot spring destination, with day-trip bathing facilities and hot spring inns where you can bathe and enjoy the area's beautiful ravines at the same time.
