The Furano-Biei area in Hokkaido is an amazing destination for a summer trip with its wonderful lavender fields, wide blue sky and cobalt blue pond. This article introduces some of the great attractions in Furano and Biei, what to do on a trip, and tips for getting there from Sapporo.
Hokkaido is famous for its snow festivals, ski resorts and the vast and calm scenery of the countryside. Now as winter is receding to the backstage and the sunlight of summer is drawing near, let’s get ready for a summer escape to the green and blue paradise of Furano and Biei.
But before we start our journey, let me give you some tips for a great trip at an affordable price.
The sooner you book your tickets and accommodations, the cheaper they are! Plan your trip as early as possible so that you don’t miss a convenient deal. For a summer trip? Now is the time to start booking!
Another tip is that Hokkaido weather is very changeable. Don’t forget to bring an umbrella or raincoat. A light wind jacket is also recommended as mornings and evenings tend to be cool.
If you come to the Furano-Biei area by airplane, instead of buying a direct ticket to Asahikawa Airport (which is the closest airport to this region), you can consider booking a flight to Sapporo (which normally will cost you only one third of the price to Asahikawa) and purchase the Furano-Biei Free Ticket.
