Things To See & Do Around Biei JR Station - Hokkaido

I have never heard about Biei before, a small city which is 2,5 hours away by train from the largest city in Hokkaido, Sapporo. As we were planning our Hokkaido trip, mr.husband request to do his cycling in Biei. 

After a further searching on the internet, I found out that Biei, which is known as a hilly town  is very beautiful. I also found a flower field called Shikisai no Oka. I will write a full review of Shikisai no Oka in a separate post later on, but let me share with you things you can do around the city of Biei, to be precise: around Biei JR Station.

We took train from Asahikawa to Biei JR Station about 40 minutes, and we got out in a small station of Biei. I will share with you things you can enjoy around Biei JR Station, to plan your visit to Biei.

1. Visit The Biei Tourism Association

If you are not sure what kind of public transport you can take to visit various interesting places around Biei, just head to the Biei Tourism Association. It is located on the left side of the Biei JR Station, just 3 minutes walking away. You can purchase your tour tickets and also shop for hand made souvenirs. 

The tour mostly will cover Patchwork Road, Panorama Road, Blue Pond and Shikisai No Oka.

We exit the station and walk to the building

2. Eat Biei Jonny's Curry Rice (Non-halal)

We were starving, and we were so happy to find a little yellow food truck which sold curry rice, just opposite Biei JR Station. Too bad it contains pork, so we just had a chat with Jonny, the owner.

Jonny is a very friendly man (too bad we didn't take a picture with him), who speaks very good English, as he had stayed in the US. He told us places to visit in Biei and also told us the nearest convenience store from Biei JR Station, to grab something for our lunch.

For my non-muslim friends, you can try this

3. Visit The Bakery Just Opposite Biei JR Station

In a search of the convenience store, we found a lovely bakery just meters away from Biei JR Station.

It sells many kind of bread and also biscuits from Hokkaido. We didn't get the name of the bakery, if you do know the name, please let me know:)

You should visit this bakery
All look so yummy

The Biei JR Station and its surrounding is so gorgeous. You may want to stop everywhere just to take pictures. Or doing a dab or two:p
