The Rainbow of Flowers in Biei and Furano, Japan

The Rainbow of Flowers in Biei and Furano,Japan
by Michael Lai


Both Biei and Furano are located in Hokkaido, Japan. For the love of flowers, we flew thousands of kilometers to  Sapporo in Hokkaido and, from there, we rented a car equipped with GPS and set out to pursue our flowers and trees.   We drove hundreds of kilometers to Biei and Furano. One thing we particularly looked forward to was viewing of the lavender fields.

Biei (美瑛町) is famous for its views of wide fields and hills. The bright colours of its fields attract thousands of visitors in the summer. Furano (富良野市), a city in the southern reaches of Kamikawa Subprecture, is well-known as a tourism destination famous for its lavender fields.

Our visit to Biei and Furano was bascially an unstructured tour, we just drove to where we would like to go, depending on where our hearts led us. We first stopped by the lavender fields.

Driving further afield, what caught our eyes  were rows and rows of carefully planted flowers in multi-colors arranged  like a beautiful rainbow.
