My 1st Self-drive (F&E) tour. My 1st visit to Japan. I LOVE this place. We can see that the mountains still cover with snow. We happened to see a deer when we are on our way to the Tokachidake Bogakudai Observation Tower. The scenery is awesome.

After the visit to the Blue Pond, we continued our journey through the hills and we were really glad to stop at the vista point. We lucked out that the storm had passed a couple days earlier so was sunny and quite pleasantly warm even though the ground had snow and the mountains were snow covered. Great vista point to...

We went there before Blue Pond about 3pm. The weather was just nice, windy and cool. There is a free of charge car park, public toilet with toilet rolls but very smelly and not clean, closed down souvenirs shop and few tourist. Overall scenery around is beautiful, can view the Tokachi mountains and play with the volcanic rock.

We were in the Biei region and have booked a hotel at Shirogane onsen. The view point is just 10 mins drive from Shirogane and can be combined with a visit to the blue pond if you are not staying in the area. From the view points, you can see the daisetsuzan mountains up close and the unblocked views of... More
