A good factory tour of one of Furano's finest products. Get to milk on a model cow and then taste the many cheese on offer. One of the must see places in Furano

Try the classes here, they are in Japanese but we found them fun and easy to follow. Plus now we know how to make our own riccotto and butter!!

This is not a place for shopping, although there was a good range of cheese and cheese related products. We came here as it offers activities for the family. My husband and I and our 2 grand daughters aged 6 and 4, went for the...More
