Furano · Biei · Asahikawa

Asahikawa, Furano and Biei, all of which are adjacent to each other, are often grouped together as one area because the transportation between these three places is so quick and easy.

Asahikawa is the second largest city in Hokkaido, after Sapporo. Tackling the grand Asahidake snow mountain is the only way to access Sounkyo, Furano and Biei. The northern Asahiyama Zoo is definitely one of the major attractions of Asahikawa.

As one of the most popular zoos in Japan, it provides a free and relaxed environment for the animals. You can see polar bears diving, seals swimming and other unique animals in a natural environment. The most famous activity here is the penguin walking. This adorable scene can only be witnessed twice a day so don’t miss it!

Furano and Biei are two beautiful and unforgettable sightseeing spots in Hokkaido, and are worth visiting in both summer and in winter. The wide-ranging Furano Biei area includes Biei, Kami-Furano, Naka-Furano, Furano, Minamifurano and Tomamu Alpha Resort. In summer, the lavender and sunflower in the Furano wild flower fields resemble a colorful patchwork. In winter, the snowy mountain offers another kind of beauty. In addition to the natural landscape, you can also take a stroll through the Furano Forest Fairy Terrace, choose exquisite handicrafts, sit in the "Forest of the Hours" café or have seasonal lavender ice cream, honeydew and dessert.

For a trip in summer time, it is recommended that you rent a bike and cycle through the sea of flowers and wheat fields. In winter, it is better to rent a car, as the public transport is very inconvenient. If you can, stay in the Tomamu Resort – it’s a truly unique experience.
