Lavenders in Hokkaido

In the summer, lavender viewing is one of the top attractions in Hokkaido. Lavender is from a group of herbs that are native to the Mediterranean littoral. It is difficult to grow in areas of high temperature and high humidity, and the climate of Furano allows a number of lavender fields to spread in the area, making it the symbol of Furano. Both public and private lavender fields extend along the Furano City, and the whole hillside turns into a mass of violet in the high season.

Lavender has been cultivated in Hokkaido for more than half a century. When the arrival of lower priced, imported lavender led to a decrease in demand for Hokkaido's lavender in the 1960s and 70s, the local lavender's main function shifted from agricultural product to tourist attraction. Nowadays, Furano's lavender fields attract large numbers of visitors to the region every summer, when the plants are in full bloom. The majority of lavender usually starts blooming in late June and reaches its peak from around mid July to early August. Less numerous, later flowering varieties of lavender remain in bloom into mid August.
