Furano

Situated in the center of the island, Furano has become known for its idyllic rural landscape, and the drastic changes it experiences as seasons shift.
On the 24th (Mon), stop by Campana Rokkatei.

Plan my trip to Furano with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Furano is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Malaysia Time (MYT) to Japan Standard Time (JST), which is usually a 1 hour difference. In February, Furano is colder than Kuala Lumpur - with highs of -3°C and lows of -12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 24th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Teshikaga-cho.
