Asahikawa City Museum
The Asahikawa City Museum has a great number of works on display focusing on the history, culture and nature of Hokkaido. The display is arranged in such a way that you can do more than just see the works. You can actually feel what it was like in the time of the Ainu people. Come and enjoy the culture of the Ainu, Hokkaido’s people.


Hills and Patchwork Road in Biei
A wide variety of crops are planted in the hilly countryside of Biei. This gives it the appearance of a patchwork quilt. This famous scenery is a quintessential Hokkaido image. Unlike the tours run by other companies, our tour doesn’t simply pass through this area. Instead of taking pictures from the window as you move past, you can get out and enjoy the scenery at a leisurely pace and photograph the famous sights of Biei.

Asahiyama Zoo
Asahiyama Zoo is famous for its special approach to showing animals as they behave in the wild. You can get up close to animals behaving as they would in nature at any time of the year and in any weather. Mogu Mogu Time is when the penguins and seals have their dinner and a great chance to see them up close. Mogu mogu is the sound of chewing in Japanese, a bit like om nom nom! The zookeepers will explain in detail about the animals while feeding them. The adorable way the animals act will definitely be therapy for your soul.

Farm Tomita
Farm Tomita has the greatest lavender fields in Japan. For lavender fields in the summer, it simply has to be Farm Tomita! Come and take a picture of the premier lavender fields of Japan. Even out of season it is well worth seeing. Savor the aromatic lavender ice cream and lavender cheesecake while you are here. May : Tulips June : Poppies and lavender July – August : Lavender September – October : Keitō flowers (cockscomb) and Sarubia flowers (scarlet sage)

Cycling
It’s up to you whether you would like to take it easy through the country fields or off-road it in the forest. Have a great time cycling with our English speaking guide. This tour plan ensures that you can enjoy all the magnificent scenery Hokkaido has to offer. (In the event of rain, plans may be subject to change)


Shirogane Blue Pond
A mysterious blue pond. A wonder of nature. It is famous as the picture used in the Blue Pond wallpaper in Apple software was taken here. It has recently become a key tourist location in Hokkaido. The scenes are as beautiful as any picture.



Otokoyama’s Sake Brewery and Asahikawa Tambo Art
The Otokoyama Sake Brewery Museum showcases the history and culture of Japanese Sake. Ukiyo-e art and precious artefacts from the Edo Period (1603 – 1868) are on display. And, of course, you can try drinking some sake.
Tambo Art is available to view between early July and mid-August only. Pictures are created on the paddy fields by planting six different kinds of rice plant. Only viewable during the summer, this is a uniquely Japanese art for you to behold.
(For those taking a tour between early July and mid August)

For your evening meal, relish the magnificent cuisine which uses Hokkaido’s finest ingredients. With a natural hot spring, treetop trekking and the Ningle Terrace shopping area all in the hotel grounds, you will never be short of things to do.
