The scenery of Biei has a lot of superb view spots that can be used for car commercials, cigarette packages, and Apple wallpapers.
There are fields and flower fields in the horizon, and the warm atmosphere frees you from tired everyday life, and you can even feel the illusion of getting lost in a fairyland.
It is accessible from Sapporo in 2 hours by train or 3 hours by car. If you are traveling in New Chitose for more than 2 nights, it is a must-visit place.
Even though it is a pretty countryside, there are places where you can stay, such as Shirokane Onsen, so you can stay in Biei! This time, I will introduce a little bit about the beauty of Biei!
Nearby Asahikawa! Biei is a fantastic fantasy with Seven Star tree and blue pond
There is a blue pond in Biei, three and a half hours by car from Sapporo. Until I went, I has thought, “It just looks blue with the camera” but really blue.
It looks blue because of a nearby hot spring. Although it is called Shirokane Hot Spring, it contains a lot of unusual components (aluminum ions), which flow into the blue pond and reflect light, making it look blue.
It looks blue even on a cloudy day and looks like a bath salt, but when exposed to the sun, it emits a light-emitting blue, creating a mysterious atmosphere.
The blue pond is used for the wallpaper of Apple’s mac, and is highly evaluated around the world. The area around the pond is well maintained, and there are parking lots and retail stores so that you can enjoy it slowly on site.
