November 25th, 2016

Sanai-no-Oka Observatory Park

Sanai-no-Oka Observatory Park (三愛の丘展望公園) is a park on a small hill in Biei town located in the southeastern part of Asahikawa city, and a beautiful typical scenery of Hokkaido with gentle ridge of hills in the Biei can be seen. A gazebo, a parking lot and a public restroom are built on the small hill at about 310 m above sea level. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge. Those are closed in a winter. Around Private Fields No Trespassing !

The distance is around 5 km away from the center of the Biei, and Garden Praise (ガーデンプレイズ) and Sanai-no-Oka Cafe Curve (三愛の丘茶屋カーブ) are near here. Red Roof House in Fields (赤い屋根のある丘), Chiyoda-no-Oka Lookout (千代田の丘見晴らし台) and Mizusawa Dam (水沢ダム) 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.

Sanai Hill

A lookout with a steeply pitched roof like the gazebo is built on the Sanai Hill. But a view is hardly to be enjoyed in a summer because trees are planted beside the lookout. So a typical rural landscape of the Hokkaido can be seen from birch trees planted at the boundaries of the fields. Potato flowers are in full bloom from June to July, and its view seems to be beautiful. In addition, a triangle roof of Bibaushi Elementary School can be seen. A lot of good views are along a road rather than the lookout, and it is said that the sunset view is beautiful along the road.
