Each year when winter comes to Hokkaido, it brings with it some of the finest whitest snow in the world, as well as incredible winter festivals and fun activities. Each morning friendly locals look for visitors to show around, just to ensure that they enjoy Furano to the max. A great opportunity to make new friends and find out more about this town and local culture. Amazing blue skies and beautiful mountains surround Furano. There is an active volcano only 30 miles away.
Watch the skiiers and snowboarders with graceful ease and expertise descend down the mountain in awe, spraying diamond like snow in their wake. Becone one of them 🙂 You can also go dog sledding, tubing and x-country skiing, snowmobile-ing and snow rafting. There is no off piste skiing. Furano has a cable car (Furano Ropeway) capable of transporting 101 people. The ski area has 10 lifts.

Or at the top of Furano sit in the glass window in the Furano Prince Hotel Cocktail Bar, drinking cocktails and eating wonderfully presented dishes, some of them Japanese style.
