Biei - One of the most beautiful scenery in Japan

In Hokkaido there is a beautiful tourist town called Biei (美瑛). This beautiful city is located close to Furano and Asahikawa in the center of Hokkaido. This beautiful city is surrounded by a picturesque landscape of gentle hills and vast fields.

You can ride a bike or drive up the hills to better enjoy the beautiful countryside, and the flower parks like the Shikisai. You can visit the Hokusei Observatorya pyramid structure that offers beautiful views over the fields of Biei and the Zerebu hill.

But it is not just the city of Biei and its hill that is one of the most epic places to visit on this trip. But around the city we find farms, the best Onsen, the Bieigawa River and the Blue Lagoon, one of the most beautiful scenery in all of Japan.

Aoike - The Blue Lagoon

Between the city of Biei and the Onsen of Shirogane is located one of the most beautiful lakes in all of Japan, Aoike (青い池) which literally means Blue Lagoon. The lagoon has this deep blue color thanks to the natural minerals dissolved in the water.

This lagoon was built on the bank of the Bieigawa River, as an erosion control system, to prevent damage from the eruption of the Mount Tokachidake volcano that has already claimed several victims in the 20th century, thus creating a beautiful artificial lake among the trees. The lagoon is very beautiful, but it doesn’t have much to do other than enjoy the scenery.

Fall of Shirahige

Near the Blue Lagoon and the city of Biei, on the Bieigawa River, there is the fall of Shirahige. The white falls and the mist around the area creates a beautiful and fantastic atmosphere. The light patterns change with each two minutes, then you will never get tired of looking at the landscape.

Next to the fall of Shirahige you will find the Shirogane onsen and you can enjoy that outdoor bath. During the summer you can visit the Fukiage Onsen, one of the few places where you can enjoy a mixed bath (͡ ° ͜ʖ ͡ °) in nature.
