[Popura Farm Head Office in Naka-furano] Santa-no-Hige Has Soft Serve Ice Cream on Flesh of Melon

Popura Farm

Popura Farm (ポプラファーム) is a Santa-no-Hige (サンタのヒゲ * Santa Claus's Beard) specialty store in Naka-furano town located in the southern direction of Asahikawa city. Furano Kaihatsu corp. (有限会社フラノ開発) runs it, and Ms. Shigeko Nagao (長尾 茂子) is a company president. The head office is in the Naka-furano, and a branch opens a business in Otaru. I guess that you may not know what the Santa-no-Hige is. It is a type of sweets put soft serve ice cream on a flesh of melon. Since smooth waved curves of the appearance looks like the Santa Claus's Beard, so I suppose that its looks is the origin of the name. But it becomes noted sweets of Furano district now.

Movie of Popura Farm

My visited place is the head office facing National Route 237, and it is next to SPA and HOTELRESORT FURANO LA TERRE (ふらのラテール), and is near Farm Tomita and Nishinaka Station. A large parking lot is provided, and a monument of the Santa-no-Hige is built in front of the store. The store is large, and all seats are table seats, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

    Santa-no-Hige

    I visited here to eat such a famous dessert around 10:00 on a weekday. I entered the store, and some types of the Santa-no-Hige were served. A milk flavored soft serve ice cream seemed to be most popular, but I wanted to eat a melon flavored soft serve ice cream, so I ordered a santa-de-mix (サンタデミックス) mixed the melon flavor with the milk flavor. The price was JPY 1200.

    The diameter of a half-melon was around 10 cm. The swirl soft serve ice cream of around 15 cm height was put on a flesh of the half-melon. Typical foods of Hokkaido were combined into the dessert, and it had quite a lot of impact. Because the bottom of the half-melon was round, it was easy to fall down, so I ate the Santa-no-Hige while supporting with my hand.

    I had a bite immediately, and that was very sweet. It was tasty! Besides, it melted steadily because the soft serve ice cream was fresh. I ate greedily it, and at last reached to the flesh of the half-melon. I enjoyed eating the melon produced in Furano. Thanks for the tasty soft serve!

After that, a hot-spring inn was built by Mr. Saburo Nakagawa in 1932. But it was shutted down 1943, and only bathtubs were left. Because Mt. Tokachidake (十勝岳) became active in 1987, a temperature of the hot springs rose, and became the just right water temperature suitable for bathing, so it has became a popular secret onsen for enjoying free flowing hot springs that gush out naturally. Fukiage Ikoi Open Park (吹上いこいの広場) was maintained in 1991, so anyone has been easy to come. Furthermore, it was used as a shooting place of the television drama "From the north country (北の国から)", Mr. Kuniei Tanaka, a famous actor, and Ms. Rie Miyazawa, a famous sctress, took a bath, so a lot of tourists has came.

                        By the way, Club Tourism (クラブツーリズム), a Japanese tour travel agency, provides various types of tours such as day trip tours or ordinary tours. In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol. Choosen tourist attractions are national parks such as Rishiri and Rebun, Shiretoko, and popular tourist places such as Furano and Biei, and some activities such as hiking and fruit picking are also enjoyed depending on seasons. If you are interested in tour trips, you should visit the club tourism's website for details.
