We were excited as we head to Biei to get a view of the blue pond. However, I guess we were unlucky, it was damage by the typhoon and the pond was closed since August 28. Construction was going on to restore it. Once again the beautiful surrounding scenery left us astonish, it wasn’t a wasted trip afterall.

Tomita farm, they tried to have everything in lavender colour as lavender was their most popular and famous product. We had lavender ice-cream, it was super tasty.
We went to visit the cheese factory, pizza factory and ice cream factory thinking that it will be a big factory where we can see how cheese are being pump out from cows/sheeps/goats, being added with bacteria to make it curd and coagulate then drained to become cheese plus how milk can be mixed with sugar and flavouring then freeze to become ice cream. It turns out to be a small one, we finish within an hour.
Lots of tasty treats
Sampling of cheese
Cheese ice cream, not too bad but i expected more cheesy taste
Next up we stop by Furano wine factory
We bought this as it was sweeter than the previous one
We pass by a field of sunflowers, ‘wow’ the view was stunning, so we stopped for some photos.
As the sun set, we had dinner at Furano marche
We were famished and the food was delicious so we gobbled them up within minutes and forgot about the pictures.
We decided to call it a day and that ends our third day in Hokkaido.
