“Must-try curry rice and lavender ice cream!”
Review of Farm Tomita

Reviewed September 27, 2013

We visited in September and were prepared that we might not see much flowers in full bloom. We had driven around Biei and the Furano area and to be honest September is not the best time to visit as it was turning autumn.

Surprisingly, Farm Tomita was still filled with vibrant varieties of blooming flowers, even lavenders. Every picture we took was like a water colour palette painting. It also helped that it was not the peak season so photo-taking was a breeze.

We ate our lunch there and the cafe on the second floor offered a beautiful view of the farm. The curry rice is fragrant and mouth watering, with a breath-taking view in the mix. Another must-try is the lavender ice-cream. The farm also sells a Hokkaido brand milk, and it tastes brilliant with our lunch.

This admission is free and open to the public. Parking is free as well if you self-drive. September is also the non-peak season, hotels and even car rental is much cheaper than July and August during this month.

A must visit place at Naka-Furano. It is reachable by walking from the nearest train station. Flower sea and lavender fields. They have pretty souvenir shops and restaurants for you to shop and rest. Try to get there as early as possible to avoid the tour groups else you will not be able to take any beautiful pictures. It is free entrance.

Visited in early August when lavenders were in full bloom. The breathtaking view, coupled with sweet scent of the flowers simply took our breath away. It is quite difficult to get here without a car and we took a day trip with the Hokkaido Chuo bus.

- its free and open to public. Best time to arrive as early as possible.
- can allocate a max of 2 hours to view the entire farm.
- Nice scenery.
- Wear a tee, shorts, comfy shoes are sufficient
- Bring along a cap
- Anytime from head to toe items are made of lavender can be purchased as souvenirs over there.
- There are food eateries, best to bring along some food to avoid crowds.
- Besides, seeing breathtaking lavender. Most people miss out seeing the sun flowers. Its equally beautiful. its at the back of the slope.
- observatory deck are packed to the brim!

Visited the farm early last week on a weekday but still could not avoid the crowd. The wide stretch of flower beds was breathtaking like the colours of the rainbow, but the lavender had probably passed through their bloom and were starting to fade in colour. Nevertheless, the garden was still spectacular and provided lovely scenes for photo shots.

The farm itself is highly comercialised to cater for all ages, with cafeteria, souvenir shops and amusement ground for the kids, so much so it lacks the tranquility of the natural flower beds, like those one would find in Provence and elsewhere in Europe. Be that as it may, this is certainly an attraction worth the trip for anyone travelling in Hokkaido in the summer.
