Obihiro station, walk to bus station and look for platform 11. Bus goes at 20mins of each hour. Get down at Kofuku station and walk about 300 meters.

A cute decommissioned station with a charming name. They perform weddings here and you can buy tickets to write your own wishes on and attach to the station building yourself.
