Service Description

Everyone knows all about the famous Blue Pond! But there is so much more to discover in the area than just the Blue Pond alone... With your Dohoku Local, you'll head to Shirogane Onsen to enjoy Biei's most famous sight and walk a 3km, light walking route through a lovely silver birch forest. There's so much to discover on the way! ​ We'll meet at JR Biei Station and head to buy some food for a picnic lunch before catching the bus together to the Blue Pond. Once we've spent some time taking pictures together, we'll set off on the "Shirogane White Birch Walking Trail" together. This 3km trail stretches from the Blue Pond to our goal for today, Shirogane Onsen. ​ Along the way, we'll make all sorts of discoveries in the white birch forest! You may see many species of birds and plants and you might even be lucky enough to spot some squirrels! We'll explore a hidden waterfall in a mysterious glade on our way, where the water flows directly from the Tokachi Volcanic Group itself. ​ Soon enough, we'll reach our goal, Shirogane Onsen! After enjoying a view of the famous Shirahige Waterfall, we'll find a place to sit to enjoy our picnic lunch. If time allows, you can try out Shirogane Onsen's famous hot springs before we hop on a bus back to Biei Station together. ​ Please note that the cost of the bus fare and lunch are not included in this tour. Please make sure you have enough cash on you to pay for the bus fare and your picnic lunch.
