Farm Tomita
Furano Lavender Farm Tomita

It is the origin of the Farm Tomita as the lavender farm that Mr. Tadao Tomita (富田忠雄) has cultivated the lavender since 1958. They are located in the Nakafurano, but speaking of the lavender of the Furano, it often implies the lavender of the Farm Tomita. * Furano region is divided into 4 parts, Furano city, Kamifurano town, Nakafurano town and Minamifurano town. In old days, farm-owners in the Furano region gave up growing the lavender, and it was in a critical situation that the lavender fields might became extinct. But Mr. Tomita has been growing the lavender, and it became finally the largest tourist attraction in the Furano region. It is said that he was a legendary farm-owner. * He was dead in 2015.

Hokuseiyama Lavender Garden (北星山ラベンダー園) and Saika-no-Sato Sasaki farm (彩香の里佐々木ファーム) are relatively near here. By the way, speaking of the tasty restraunts in the Nakafurano, Auberge erba stella (オーベルジュ エルバステラ), Farm Restaurant Azemichi Yorimichi (ファームレストランあぜ道より道), the Farm Tomita, Yamanaka (やまなか) and Popura Farm (ポプラファーム) are popular in particular. I ate a meal and sweets at the Farm Restaurant Azemichi Yorimichi, the Farm Tomita and the Popura Farm, and those were tasty.
