July 2017 heralded the peak of the lavender season at Farm Tomita in Nakafurano on Japan's northernmost main island of Hokkaido.

Fields of the lavender, along with other flowers, are open for people to stroll through during the summer months.

The site is popular with tourists, and draws sizeable crowds every year.

Farm Tomita opened in 1903, with the first lavender cultivated in 1958, according to its website.

The farm has used its lavender to make a range of products, including soap, essential oils and perfume.

Alongside lavender are rows of other colorful flowers, including poppies and catchflies, which help to create a rainbow effect in the fields.
