History

Lavender known as Hokkaido's summer tradition is not endemic species to Japan. In 1937, SODA AROMATIC Co., Ltd. obtained lavender seeds by 5kg from Antoine Vial Co in France. Kamifurano Town started lavender cultivation since 1948, and increased area of cultivation to 85ha at peak. Since synthetic perfume became the major stream, the area planted was decreased. However, cultivation was conducted toward tourism industry promotion as famous picturesque place in Hokkaido.
Lavender became the official flower of Kamifurano Town in 1981. Tourist attraction in Kamifurano Town grew popularity, and Shiki Sai Fest in summer lasted long.
This year event will be held to mark 40th year since lavender become the official flower of town, and illumination of lavender will be held.

The panels are exhibited to commemorate the 40th anniversary that lavender became the official flower of Kamifurano town. We hope you can enjoy the exhibition about the history of Kamifurano Town and Lavender.
