The Lavendar Fields
The lavendar fields of Furano are the most famous in Japan. The best time to go & see them is in the summer time, from mid-May. The smell of lavendar pervades your senses when you arrive. Drive with your windows open!!
Calbee Potato Factory
Calbee is a brand of potato chips in Japan. They are my favorite!! I was so happy to happen upon Calbee Potato in Furano. Hokkaido is famous for potatoes, as well as sweet corn, seafood, & dairy products.
I don`t know if they give tours of the factory (probably not), but I was happy just to take a picture next to the sign. :)
Furano Flowerland is a greenhouse of plants & flowers. They also have a 15 hectare flower plantation. The flowers in the greenhouse are beautiful. There is a shop there where you can buy lavendar products as well.
About 15 minutes from JR Bibaushi, it's one of many farms in the area.
Go to the top of the hillock for a view of the neighbouring houses and fields.

Bibaushi Elementary School
The primary school is a popular site for avid photographers as the sunset view behind it is astounding.
On good days, watch the skies turn from pink to purple or orange and yellow.
Rolling Plains of Biel
The farmland atmosphere is refreshing, especially when different wildflowers are blooming in the cool summer breezes.
