Farm Tomita Naka-furano Reviews
Farm Tomita Jul 10, 2009
Just outside Naka-Furano is a fairly big farm specializing in the production of lavender to be used mainly in perfume but they also sell the flowers if costumers would want to buy them. You can get to the farm walking from the station in Naka-Furano or during the summer you can take the special lavender express train from Sapporo which runs directly to the station next to Tomita Farm. Hence it is possible to go to the farm as a day trip from Sapporo. Otherwise you can stay the night in Furano or Naka-Furano.
It is free to go and visit the farm and have a look around the area. You can walk around and have a look at the lavender fields and the other flower fields around the area. There is a small building where you can look at the production of perfume but there is limited action during the time I visit.
In the main building is an exhibit with lots of dried flowers which is quite impressive. The farm seems to finance its activities by selling perfume, soap and flowers at several shops on the farm area. You can likewise get the legendary lavender ice cream on the farm so you got a change to eat some of the flowers.
