Ningle Terrace, Hokkaido, Japan
Owing to its romantic beauty, the Ningle Terrace in Furano is a favourite spot for drama producers. There is a shop selling merchandise from the various dramas produced in and around the Ningle Terrace – Yasashi Jikan and From the North Country just to name a couple.
These cottage shops sell various handicraft products from customized leather goods to hand-crafted wooden figurines to paper artwork. The tall pine trees that surround these little cottages not only create a beautiful scenery but also give the terrace a great scent. The Ningle Terrace is the best viewed at night, when its numerous fairy lights glow against the dark. It is best accessed by car or taxi.
