Trust me when I say this is the perfect place to get lost in a sea of flowers.
Tokuma Tomita first planted flowers here over one hundred years ago, and in the 1950s, they began growing lavender for its oil. Business was good for a while, until other countries started growing it too and demand fell.
They got another break when the train company JR introduced their lavender fields in a calendar. Then, many flocked from near and far to visit. There’s no entrance fee to this beautiful place either, which makes it even more of a must-see destination in Hokkaido!
Up close and personal with the lavender.
A fine mist of lavender and early morning dew creates delicate purple clouds.
Besides lavender, there is a wide variety of other flowers too!
