The distance is around 10 km away from the center of the Biei, and Lunch and Cafe Kaze biei (ランチ&カフェ風 美瑛) is near here. Takushinkan (拓真館) is 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.

Panoramic Flower Fields

Roll-Kun (ロールくん) made of hay welcome visitors in the Shikisai-no-Oka Hill (四季彩の丘). There are the fields and the flower fields named Panoramic Flower Fields of 15 ha, and About 30 types of flowers such as Lavender, Cosmos, Marigold, Sunflower can be enjoyed from May to October on the hillsides at about 300 m above sea level, and it is said that July is the best season in particular. The time it takes to look around colorful carpets on the hillsides is around 2 hours. You may be tired because of a difference of elevation, so you should wear comfortable shoes. Touring agricultural motor tractor bus "Norokko-go" (トラクターバス「ノロッコ号」) and a golf cart are provided to look around without walking. A fare of the Norokko-go is JPY 500. A fare of the golf cart is over JPY 1500. In addition, the visitors can drive a dune buggy on a path only for the dune buggy. The fare is JPY 500. But the flower fields can not be looked around.

I think that the visitors must be moved by a conbination of the colorful carpet range, the blue sky and the Tokachidake Mountain Range. People shouted for joy here and there because various views were instagrammable. Especially, I got excited at a heat when I went to the flower fields from an entrance, and those came into sight. Only hill town Biei could be enjoyed. It is not natural beauty but man-made art.

The colorful flowers go well with the sky and trees on the hilltop, and a tree is accent on the hillside, too. Photos with difference of elevation can be taken here and there. I walked a lot so I was very tired, but I was absorbed in taking a photo, and it might be effective for dieting.
