[OFF-SEASON] Lake Kanayama Lavender Garden and Cherry Picking

This fun day tour lets you experience the charms of Minamifurano Town in the summer. You will visit Lake Kanayama to enjoy a fragrant and photogenic lavender garden on the lakeside. You will then enjoy a gorgeous lunch in a log cabin hotel, then experience all-you-can-eat cherry picking in a fruit orchard. Before the end of the tour, you can stop by the Minamifurano Roadside Station to buy snacks or souvenirs.

The Lake Kanayama Lavender Garden is a place to see rare lavender fields on a lakeside. The purple lavenders and the blue lake and green mountains create a spectacular contrast. It is also a relatively little-known lavender spot, so you can take your time taking photos and enjoying the scenery.

After enjoying the sight and fragrance of the lavender fields, you will enjoy a luxurious lunch in a restaurant located inside a log cabin hotel. This place is surrounded by rich nature and offers a calm, relaxing environment.

You will then visit a fruit orchard located on a hill overlooking Lake Kanayama. Here you can experience cherry picking and enjoy eating the juicy cherries as much as you want. Note: a separate fee is required to take home the cherries.
