"Roadside Station Biei ""Okanokura"""道の駅びえい「丘のくら」

Michi no Eki Road Station

A roadside station housed inside a remodeled storehouse built of local soft stone in Biei Town. Inside, the extensive use of Biei Japanese larch wood gives the station a warm, inviting atmosphere. Here you can buy cider modeled after Biei's famous Blue Pond; local specialty products like Biei milk, pork, and flour; and wood and ceramic pieces by local artists. Events such as solo and photo exhibitions featuring artists connected to Biei are periodically held in the station's event space.

Review of Michi-no-Eki Biei Okanokura

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2017/06/13 nice wayside stop
didn't see too much here...just a wayside stop and a place where folks sold some natural produce. there was a nice apple crepe shop next to it.
Reviewed:2017/05/05 Walkable from the JR Station
Was in Biei and not expecting much because I was not driving and I could not go anywhere far. Michi-no Eki Biei Okanokura was on the Biei Main Street, walkable from JR station.
Reviewed:2016/12/11 For local produce
Road stations or Michi no Eki are to be found all over Hokkaido. They are generally good places to stop for refreshments and to buy local produce. Sometimes you have to get in early before the best...

          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
