Hokkaido day 3

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.dsc_0458

It was gorgeous!

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.dsc_0795dsc_0797dsc_0821dsc_0828dsc_0840

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.dsc_0847dsc_0852dsc_0856dsc_0859dsc_0861dsc_0863

We decided to call it a day and that ends our third day in Hokkaido.
