NINGLE TERRACE (ニングルテラス)| Shopping Road in the Forest | Furano

Ningle (ニングル) is the name of the dwarf that is believed by Ainu people to live in the forests in Hokkaido. Located in the Picnic Garden (ピクニックガーデン) adjacent to the Prince Hotel New Furano (新富良野プリンスホテル), 15 log cabins in the forest are all shops selling various kinds of handicrafts.

Let's go!

Ningle Terrace (ニングルテラス) has been created using natural materials with timber buildings and plank walkways around the waterfalls and trees.

The forest gives off a wonderful scent with pine trees and the waterfall creating a peaceful atmosphere for wandering around or stopping at the cafe.

This is a notice, saying "two Ningle families are living in the forest. Please do not raise your voice, nor stare at Ningles. Please take a side glance of them."

Craft creators sit in each shop, displaying and making their products as you wander around.
I'll show you some of their art works.

■Stump-shaped candles

■Walnut & pine cone ornaments

■Snowman-shaped kaleidoscopes

■Leather crafts

■Peanut shell ornaments

■Snow crystal-shaped accessories

The "Chu Chu House (チュチュの家)", a cafe serves a range of products including......................

hot and cold drinks, apple pies, cakes, and

baked milk!

Let's enter it!

I recommend to come here during the winter time, too!

I ordered a a Swiss roll and baked milk set!

Yummy x 2!!

Have you ever tried baked milk?
It is cold sweet milk. The baked part tastes like milk pudding! Amazing, isn't it?

Just for reference, when you come here during the winter time, the scenery changes like this↓

I love this romantic atmosphere!!

I really enjoyed this area from the bottom of my heart!!
