Lavender farm

  • Sightseeing

The Tomita farm is a free park-like flower farm. It is one of the most popular tourist sites in the summer because several varieties of lavender bloom from late June to the middle of August.
In the 1950s lavender was cultivated in the Furano area for essence use, however it declined due to the import of low priced synthetic perfume in the early 1970s.
In 1976 a photo of theTomita lavender field was included in the Japan Railway calendar and it led to an increase of tourists in Tomita. The more Tomita expanded attractions such as fields, products related to lavender and shops, the more tourists are coming.

The light purple lavender field had the Tokachi mountain range as a background.
Tomita has 15 hectares of lavender fields and other flowers such as crocus in April, narcissus and tulip in May, lupinus, peony and Japanese rose in June as well.

There are many interesting facilities : the Hanabito house (Welcome House), the dried flower house, a distillery workshop, a perfume house, a geen house and a flower gallery. A shop also sells a wide variety of lavender related products such as oil, perfume, soap, incense, potpourri, tea and so on.There is lavender ice cream only available at Tomita too.

Lavender East is the second farm of Tomita which opened in 2008. It is located 4km East from Tomita farm. It is a real lavender farm but open to the public.
There is a lavender bus around the farm which is pulled by a tractor at gentle speed so you can enjoy the scenery.
It is not open all year long so make sure you check the official website before you go. It may only be open during the summer.
