Hinode Park is the town of Kami Furano’s lavender patch. It has a parking lot at it lower end as well as at its hilltop. We drove up all the way to the viewpoint building.
You have a great view of the entire Furano region down below and the volcanic Tokachi Mountains behind. Some smoke is clearly visible from one of the mountain tops.
Unlike Farm Tomita in the town of Naka Furano, this is a fully open hill with larger lavender fields. When we visited the park on July 7th, 2017, lavenders weren’t yet in full bloom. A gardener who was weeding in a flower patch told us it would require at least a week or two. When we visited the same park in 2016 on July 6, the same lavenders weren’t yet in full bloom, either. Probably the lavenders at Hinode Park are late bloomers than those at Farm Tomita in Naka Furano.
The hilltop has a rest house/view point, an ice cream shop that was there in 2016 wasn’t available this year.
