It is not impossible, but we recommend using Asahikawa as the base.
From Sapporo, it’s a two-hour drive by car. It is not impossible to come back in a day. If you use Furano or Asahikawa as the base, it is possible to combine the trip with a visit to Asahiyama Zoo.

Going by car is efficient! To visit the flower farm, it’s better to be early.
Lavender blooms in July- August , and the roads around the flower farm can be crowded. To avoid traffic jam, we recommend that you leave early.
