Are you among the many who are not sure what to do around Furano in winter?
Winter is actually the very time when there are lots of activities to choose from. In the white snow, you can fish for Japanese pond smelt, ride a snowmobile or AVT quad bike, or even soar in a hot air balloon while taking in your fill of Furano.

Some of the cold still hangs around in spring, so as long as you have a jersey or coat you will be fine for sightseeing.
While being strongly associated with lavender fields, spring brings to Furano brightly colored blooming flowers that create yet a different kind of scenery to summer. Again, other activities unavailable in winter, such as river rafting and outdoor camping can be enjoyed.
