The distance is around 4 km away from the center of the Biei, and Shiki-no-Kaze (四季の風) is near here. Christmas Tree (クリスマスツリーの木) and Kanno Farm (かんのファーム) are relatively near here, and I think tourists can drop by here while they enjoy a tour of Panorama Road (パノラマロード). By the way, speaking of the tasty restraunts or shops near Biei Station, Restaurant ASPERGES (レストラン・アスペルジュ), Komugikobo (小麦工房), Yoshoku and Cafe Junpei (洋食とcafeじゅんぺい) and Senkakobo (選果工房) are popular in particular. I ate foods at the Restaurant ASPERGES, the Komugikobo and the Senkakobo, and those were tasty.
