Unwind this summer in the beautiful northernmost region of Japan on this custom private group tour.

Tour beautiful Furano and Biei, known as the top flower-viewing spot in Hokkaido. We start at the Furano Cheese Factory in Hokkaido, which showcases cheese-making processes, offers workshops, and allows tastings of various cheese products. Adjacent is the Furano Winery, providing insight on wine production in Hokkaido and concluding with wine tastings, allowing visitors to savor locally produced wines. After, we visit Tomita Farm. The vast fields of lavenders at Farm Tomita are especially popular. Other attractions include tulips on Shikisai Hill, the view from Panorama Road, and the Blue Pond of Biei.

The Usuzan Ropeway ascends Mount Usu with sights of the lake and Showa Shinzan volcano, formed from a 1940s eruption. Showa Shinzan allows visitors to witness unique volcanic landscapes, perfect for nature lovers and those intrigued by volcanic formations.

Otaru, a charming port city in Hokkaido, boasts several attractions. The Otaru Canal, adorned with vintage warehouses and gas lamps, offers a nostalgic atmosphere perfect for a leisurely stroll.
