Biei is best known for its Toscana-ish vibe and views. This area offers great ambiance and views, and is PERFECT for a picnic. In summer local farmers might set up fruit stalls that sell fresh fruit for reasonable prices.

I read the review that said that it's just a typical field that you can find in the countryside. The thing is, I think me and most Japanese people don't really find these fields in our everyday life in the big cities of Japan. That's why driving around Biei is a popular holiday for the Japanese. I was tired of seeing the computers, the tall buildings, and the super-speed train everyday that it just soothes me seeing the green and yellow colors of the fields and the wide blue sky.

I saw some people renting bicycles and go around the area during the day. I am lazy so I just had my husband drive me around. When I felt like taking pictures, we stop the car on the side of the road and slowly walks around a bit, enjoys the scenery, and take some pictures. This area is definitely my favorite place of all Biei because I can easily find a quiet place where there are no other tourist around. If you want a bit more people, there are some popular landmarks in the area such as the flower fields and the trees of which picture was used for the box of famous cigarette brands.

all these places along with the blue pond, farm tomita are best to visit by renting a car, keying in the mapcodes and driving around. If you happen to pass by a nice view just pull over at the side and snap a picture. the roads are pretty empty so easy to drive around.

The vast landscape filled with white snow is equally breathtaking.
A very humbling experience for city folks.

We took twinkle bus to visit these places in the end of July. In this course, the bus departed from tourist information center (right in front it) and the first stop was at Ken and Marry Tree (10 min), which is a very big tree, named after the characters appeared in the Nissan car commercial. The next stop was Seven Stars Tree (10 min), a famous oak tree used for cigarette packages. Then the bus drove through (did not stop, only viewed from bus window) Parents & Child Tree, which name is given because of three oaks look like a child between parents. The third stop was Hokusei-no-oka (10 min), where we had the panoramic view of fields from top of the pyramid observatory. Tour finished in JR Biei Station. It was a very enjoyable scenic driving.

Note:
1. Tourist information is inside Shiki-no-Jouhou Kan Information Center, which is diagonal at the JR station
2. The whole course is about 80 min
3. Fare: adult 1500 Japanese yen, and half price (750) for age 6-11
4. It is better to take bus tour or drive yourself, you have to be very strong to bike it around, and some places are hilly.

It is okay for a short visit, but there were a lot of large tour groups visiting this place. The flower fields are pretty to look at and to take pictures. Unlike Farm Tomita, this place is not nearly as well organized. To save time, we rented a gas-powered golf cart, which was 2000 yen for 15 minutes. It is a little steep, but I have no problem with it since there was no admission fee charged. Before we left, we tried to buy something but the store area was so crowded that we couldn't even move around.

Great site for taking your shots on green fields as far as the eyes can see. A little touristy. Drive a little down the road (10-15mins drive) and you will find a great bakery (interesting building structure) on the left side...

The potatoe fields, the trees (mild seven, seven star, father mother & son) offer excellent scenic views.
Many ploughed fields that offer bleached/brown landscapes amidst greenery add to the bliss.
Driving around is easy and comfortable.
We split our stay at Asahikawa and Furano. This way, we covered more of Biei especially patchwork road during our stay in Asahikawa and covered the panorama road on our way to Furano and finally covered the lavender fields/farms in Furano during our stay in Furano.

We had very good weather one day and decided to cycle. Snow capped mountains can be seen, as with lovely rolling hills. There were lupines everywhere and the weather, while sunny, had a cool breeze. Note that the cycling route has a couple of uphill slopes - most people just push their bikes up the path, or get the electrical bicycle. Also, loads of buses travel the route. So beware.

Along with Panorama Road (right in the same area), this is an absolutely lovely place--if you have a rental car, go for it! If not, get one! Or a bike if you're up to it (I saw some parents/kids on bikes, but watch out for cars...and tractors!). I've only been when the fields were lush and green in the summer, but the the scenic views are probably worth it in any season. Plenty of places to pull off and enjoy the view, just don't get in the way of the farmers :)
