Nakafurano Town in Hokkaido is famous for attracting a lot of tourists from abroad. In early summer, the scent of full bloomed lavenders fills the town, and the murmur of a stream and the sounds of birds and animals can be heard. In winter, skiers come from as far away as Europe and the U.S. looking for powder snow rarely seen in the world and enjoy backcountry life. Hokkaido offers the most delicious food in Japan. Nakafurano Town is a place to enjoy luxurious days off. We will convey the charm of the Nakafurano area through the images of kendo, a traditional Japanese martial art.
La ville de Nakafurano, sur l’île d’Hokkaido, est célèbre pour attirer de nombreux touristes étrangers. Au début de l’été, le parfum des lavandes en fleur embaume la cité, au son du murmure de l’eau, d’oiseaux et d’animaux. En hiver, des skieurs viennent de loin, jusque d’Europe et des États-Unis, pour vivre au rythme de la nature et profiter d’une neige poudreuse sans pareille ou presque dans le monde. Hokkaido offre la meilleure gastronomie du Japon. Nakafurano est une petite ville où se reposer dans l‘opulence. Nous transmettrons le charme de cette contrée à travers des images de kendo, un art martial traditionnel japonais.
