A Greenhouse in Farm Tomita


One of the places I visited in Hokkaido was a flower farm located in Nakafurano, called Farm Tomita. Early April probably isn't the best time to visit since the weather is still very cold and there is still so much snow. Normally, the vast fields of unadulterated snow are filled with streams of colorful flowers. But during the winter time, Farm Tomita keeps their flora inside a greenhouse, so anyone can visit at any time and still enjoy a beautiful array of flowers, including lavender, poppies, and marigolds.

Visiting the farm early in the morning was just amazing, The greenhouse was very cozy. I could have spent hours inside there, just looking at the flowers and sitting on a bench. It would have been absolutely amazing to sit there with a book and a cup of coffee, different from the usual coffee shop, ha ha! I was a little bit sad because I was expecting the room to smell like lavender, but the lavender was still in the process of blooming. So instead, the air was cool and crisp, and very fresh, as if the little greenhouse was a box of spring. There was also a little brick well covered in moss. I was taken aback when I read a sign that said "Do not feed the fish." There were fish in that well!

  1. Wow! These photos are lovely! I haven't been to Furano yet. I hope I'll have a chance to see the beautiful lavender field there in future.

  2. Oh wow! That greenhouse looks like a fairy-land. Those brick-walls and the moss-covered fountain look so cute. It must be weird to go from super wintery and snow to a place like that.

    I loooove your stories from your trip to Japan. :D

  8. That place looks so beautiful! I feel like infant me would always be trying to get away from my parents and hide around the flowers. Infant me would go crazy for a place like that. And the scenery looks beautiful, too!
