ファーム富田 . 팜 도미타 . 富田农场

(A sightseeing stop in the Hong Thai Travel 7D Hokkaido Package Tour, my first packaged tour experience.)

What we saw

If we had visited Farm Tomita ファーム富田 a few months later, we may be able to see this instead:

Luckily, we could still see and smell the lavender flowers (for which the farm is famous for) because the farm had a greenhouse that housed them. 

As we made our way across the fields to the gift shop and cafe, Mom kept gushing about the beautiful scenery here and took lots of pictures. I like the scenery but I don't really like plants.

Purple is Mom's favourite colour so she was quite taken with these too.

At the cafe and gift shop, Mom and I shared a lavender soft serve ice cream which had a very nice scent. Mom also bought quite a lot of lavender-made products like paper soap, tea, and scents that were exclusively produced by Farm Tomita.

Other food sold include curry rice, and hotdogs etc

It was a short visit, and I hope to come back again when the flowers are in bloom (and to eat more lavender ice-cream too)!
