This article features the beautiful sightseeing destinations around Biei in Hokkaido, such as the Blue Pond (Aoi Ike), White Beard Falls (Shirahige no taki) and the popular winter amusement resort Shikisai Hills (Shikisai no oka).

Enjoy Hokkaido Especially in Winter

What do you think about today’s destination? Where you're able to feel the charm of Hokkaido, which is not limited to the summer season?

Among the visitors of Hokkaido, about 20% of the tourists come in winter. This means that during winter there is no congestion and that there is an increased possibility for you to enjoy the beautiful sightseeing spots all by yourself.

For all of you who want to enjoy a side of Hokkaido that few other people get to know, we definitely recommend the winter season!
