Red and pink poppies swayed gently in the breeze for as far as I could see. The bright crimson against the brilliant green stems and leaves were a stunning sight. This alone made the visit worthwhile.

In Furano, bike riding is a fantastic way to explore and has a good value at 200 yen per hour. Because Furano has rich and delicious food at many attractions, bike riding is also a good way to sample local delights without adding to your waistline. In Japan, helmets are not compulsory for adults so if you prefer to wear one, bring it along.
