There are abundance of lodgings to choose from.
Even back packers lodges.
This is the gondola station for the skiers in winter.
The ski tracks are at these hills behind the station.
It is a very picturesque area. Reminded me of how our Kinabalu National Park could have looked like if we had taken more care of the natural environment of the place when building infrastructures.
A small lavender farm 2 minutes walk from where we stayed.
Viewed from the terrace of another hotel.
Lavender bushes. It's everywhere here in Furano at this time of the year. These were found near a temple.
A small temple a stone throw away from Furanui.
A very quaint 'soto' cafe. Don't think they serve soto ayam though.
I am as crazy about flowers as I am about food. This is the first one I am posting but definitely not going to be the last. Hokkaido at this time (summer) is a heaven bursting with beautiful flowers... I have more flowers shots than food shots taken here in Hokkaido.
Second one and counting...
After the rain... it rained almost the whole time we were in Hokkaido. The rain we encountered here was very pleasant. It drizzled like fine mist, very lightly and very softly but continuously.
One more for the road... These were all taken in Furano near where we stayed.
