Hokkaido is such a wonderful place. It isn’t crowded at all, so it’s a nice escape for those who are looking to get away from the city for a bit. Even the capital Sapporo isn’t as overwhelming as Taipei.
On our second day in Hokkaido, we travelled to Farm Tomita, located in Furano, which some refers to as Japan’s Provence for their magnificent lavender fields. Unfortunately lavender bloom earlier in the summer, around May, so we were only able to see lavender in the greenhouse. The day that we visited was grey and cloudy. However, the rainbow fields at Farm Tomita was beautiful, even with the horrible weather.
I have heard that the lavender soft serve was a must-try when visiting Furano, and I was not disappointed. I have always loved lavender food products such as lavender earl grey, lavender macarons, and now I can add lavender soft serve to that list as well!
Hokkaido is famous for their milk products, so it’s no wonder that their soft serve ice cream is so good.
