Fulfilling Experiences in the Flower Season

Purple carpet, green farmland and majestic Mt. Tokachi Range in your eyes

“Hokuseiyama” situated in the western hill of Nakafurano, this symbolic flower park displays 4 kinds of lavenders, sunflower, marigold, salvia and other annual plants from mid-June to the early September. At the peak climbing up by the single chair-lift, you will surely fall in love with the vast panorama of Mt. Tokachi Range, rural farmland of Furano Basin and purple carpet of lavender blossom.

For your reference, under age participants in the past were age of 4 to 6; however, the guardian must confirm whether she/he can ride by her/himself. Also, please refrain from riding lift if you or family member have serious health problems such as severe walking difficulty, cardiovascular diseases or developing dementia or other conditions potentially causing insecure ride.

※ Recommended items to carry with you are: hat, towel, sneaker shoes (you may need to walk on slope ground)

 

※Sweet scent spreads around you when you pick up and rub lavender buds on your palm.
※This flower field is originally a ski slope. You can experience watching lavender fields while riding the chair-lift slowly. This may be found nowhere else but in Nakafurano.
※By hanging lavender upside down, you can enjoy richer scent of dried flower for a long time. Find your own ways to enjoy it, like wrapping dried buds in cloth to make sachet, potpurri, etc.
※Not only healing your heart, the lavender is known its prompt of skin generation, bactericidal reaction and insect repellent.
