Lavender Farm

Hokkaido, Japan

Hokkaido attracts visitors from late June to mid-August when the lavender fields are in full bloom, producing fragrant winds and endless pastel fields. Other flowers that are cultivated in Furano, Japan, include rape blossoms, poppies, lilies and sunflowers, which explode in swirling multicolored fields. The resulting seasonal tourist boom is savored by locals who open pop-up cafes, flower-themed shops and fragrant gift shops selling candles, herbal sachets and homemade lotions. Explore the markets yourself before touring the many farms whose famed pastures never cease to amaze.
