Encounter unique crafts in the forest where Ningle reside.
Located just a 2-minute walk from the "Shin Furano Prince Hotel" in Furano City, Hokkaido, this shopping area is nestled among the trees. "Ningle" refers to the 15cm tall "forest wisdom keepers" who live in the forests of Hokkaido, as featured in playwright So Kuramoto's play "Ningle." The enchanting forest, reminiscent of a fairy tale, houses 15 log cabins selling crafts inspired by nature.
The 15 diverse shops include "Mori NO Rousokuya," which sells wooden candles carved with animals and Ningle, "Paper Work No Ie" that captures the four seasons of Furano with tasteful washi paper, and "Mori no Leather Workshop," where simple leather crafts using the natural texture of deer and cowhide are popular. Each shop is connected by a walking path, allowing visitors to enjoy shopping while strolling through the mystical forest.
"Craft Experiences," where you can create your own unique piece with Ningle Terrace craftsmen, are also popular. Be sure to give it a try to create memories of your trip.
