The Furano Cheese Factory (富良野チーズ工房, Furano Cheese Kōbō) lets visitors observe the production process of the local camembert type cheese from behind windows. Cheese samples, including those of a black cheese colored by squid ink, can be tasted in the factory shop.

Besides the cheese factory, there is also an ice cream parlor ("ice cream factory") and a pizzeria ("pizza factory"), as well as hands-on workshops for making butter, ice cream, bread and cheese. Workshops start at fixed times during the day. Advance reservations are not required except for the bread workshop.

Access

The cheese factory can be reached in a five minute taxi or car ride from Furano Station.

During some days in summer, the cheese factory is served by the Furano Kururu Bus and Round Trip Bus Tour sightseeing buses from Furano. Outside this period, the cheese factory is not accessible by public transportation.
