8. Furano SkiingPhoto: pinterest.com
The area known as Furano is popular throughout the year for its magical plains of blossoming flowers. Thousands of people embark on the journey every spring to see the lavender at the Farm Tomita (which also has a Melon House), among other flora.
However, what is truly the breadwinner for Furano would be the downhill and cross-country skiing. The mountains are well known for their soft powdery snow. Mount Tokachi is exceptional for skiing and snowboarding, but if you are looking for autumn leaves, it is also well worth the climb.
