Farm Tomita is one of Hokkaido’s premier flower farms. Originally a simple lavender farm, today the farm has expanded to include a number of large fields of various flower types, including Poppies, French Marigolds, and many more.
The most famous image of the farm is that of the ‘rainbow field’ created by planting rows of different flowers along the gentle rolling hills. The image is unforgettable and each year visitors come to photograph the fields made famous by their use in a nation wide Japan Rail calendar.
Today I show you the flower field in early June!
This is a ‘rainbow field’ in early June, consisting of three colors of Viola tricolors (violets)↓
Beautiful, aren't they?
Farm Tomita has a green house, which offers guests blossoming flowers including lavenders throughout the year.
They are in full bloom outside in July!
Look at the Iceland poppies! How cute they are!
How about Oriental poppies? I think they are No. 1 photogenic in this season.
Oxeye daisies are a kind of chrysanthemum! I didn't know that!
Ajyuga is a kind of herb!
Chives look like leeks!
We cannot see lavenders outside, but we can enjoy snow-capped mountains and flowers at the same time in this season!
