Lavender Bus Timetable
If you go to "Farm Tomita," which is famous for the lavender field, you can use the Norokko train. It is a sightseeing train that runs from Asahikawa to Furano every summer and autumn on weekends and holidays. For example, in 2020, it was operated from Saturday, July 18, 2020, to September 22 (Tues. Iwai) on Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays.
Only this Norokko train stops at a temporary station of "Farm Tomita," so it is an option for those who travel on weekends during the season. However, it is a famous train, so it sells out quickly.
