Furano is a quaint town comprised of several farming towns around a small municipal center. It has become increasingly popular for its light and dry powdery snow – which it gets plenty of – as well as the fields of lavender and domestic vineyards. Furano is cutely nicknamed the Belly Button Town due to its geographically centered location on Hokkaido and is accessible via train or road.
Furano attractions offer a diverse range of opportunities. The Furano Cheese Factory
is a unique stop if you’ve never seen cheese made. There is also a hands-on opportunity to make your own. Wine is a popular product to pick up while here, and there is no better place for that than the Furano Winery. There are many opportunities to go skiing
or hiking while here, and snow-shoe hiking can make for a fun time. If visiting in the winter, ice-hole fishing and snowmobiling add to the list of excitement. To get in some shopping, check out the collect of small log huts selling various items at Ningle Terrace. Dining and accommodation options are abundant throughout Furano and along the main road.
