It is the Bibai Tourism and Local Products Association. "Bibai City, Hokkaido" is visited by many tourists for its abundant nature, mild climate, and delicious food. From now on, I would like to introduce the charm of Bibai City in the Cool Japan Video! First of all, Bibai City is read as "Bibaishi" and is located between Sapporo City and Asahikawa City, and is located within about one hour from both cities. Bibai City is served by National Route 12 connecting Sapporo and Asahikawa, and the section from Bibai City to Takikawa City is a straight road that continues all the way, and there is a road that boasts the best straight-line distance in terms of Japan distance. The weather and climate of Bibai City is refreshing breezes blowing through in spring, cool weather in summer, and beautiful snowscapes in winter. You can enjoy the atmosphere of the four seasons, and the beauty of each season brings new discoveries every time you visit. Introducing popular tourist spots in Bibai City! First of all, Miyajima Swamp is one of the world's leading spots where you can see migrating birds such as geese and swans. Located about 30 minutes by bus from JR Bibai Station, about 70,000 birds come from Russia far north of Hokkaido every year in spring and autumn. Especially in the early morning and evening, when you can see the herd, the sight of the sky and swamps filled with black is a masterpiece. In addition, the "Coal Mine Memorial Forest Park" is a tourist attraction not to be missed. Bibai City once flourished from coal mining. In this park, which was created by maintaining the site of the former coal mine, you can see a tower that transports coal from deep underground, and a pocket for storing coal. As a valuable tourist spot where the memories of past coal miners and the present nature coexist, it was selected as a "modernization industrial heritage" in Heisei 19. Next is "KAN YASUDA SCULPTURE MUSEUM ARTE PIAZZA BIBAI". The works of world-renowned sculptor Kan Yasuda are exhibited here. His works blend in with the surrounding landscape, as if they were one with nature, providing peace and excitement to visitors. Tomei Park, a vast park located in a hilly area, has 2,000 cherry trees in bloom during the cherry blossom season, and the "Bibai Cherry Blossom Festival" is held, and it is a popular tourist spot where you can enjoy the illuminated cherry blossoms at night. And at the "Bibai City Experience Exchange Center", even first-time visitors can easily experience pottery making and painting, and can be enjoyed by both children and adults. The last thing I would like to introduce is "Sorachi Shrine". This shrine is watched over by an old tree that is over 900 years old, and you can experience "making bangle protection" from natural stone. On your trip to Bibai City, please enjoy delicious meals. In particular, Bibai City's "Bibai Yakitori" is a local gourmet that you can't miss. It is one of the seven major yakitori Japan, and is made by skewering chicken, chicken liver, inner eggs, gizzards, and other motsu and onions. As a local soul food, it is a popular gourmet for a wide range of generations from children to adults. Please try it when you come to Bibai. And "Torimeshi" It is a local dish that has been handed down for more than 100 years, and is made by cooking rice, stir-fried meat, and motsu with soy sauce, sugar, and sake, and because it uses almost no other ingredients or seasonings, the aroma and taste have a strong chicken flavor, and it has a taste different from other mixed rice. We look forward to welcoming you with rich natural scenery, sightseeing spots where you can feel history and culture, delicious food, and warm hospitality! Stay tuned for more future posts!

Nice to meet you all! This is the Hamanaka Town Tourism Association! Since this is my first post, I would like to introduce myself about Hamanaka Town. Hamanaka is a small town with a population of 5,300 located in Akkeshi District, Hokkaido, Japan. Hokkaido Hamanaka is a place full of charm where nature, climate, culture, food, and the warmth of the people envelop all visitors. The average annual temperature in Hamanaka Town is 5.5 degrees Celsius, making it a relatively cold area in the Japan throughout the year. The cold wind carried by the cold current brings the unique climate and weather of the four seasons of Hamanaka Town. Designated as the sixth quasi-national park in Hokkaido in March 2021, Akkeshi Kiritappu Kombumori Quasi-National Park has two large wetlands, Bekanbeushi Wetland and Kiritappu Wetland. Although Kiritappu Wetland is a low-lying area of less than 3 meters above sea level, it is a valuable tourist spot where you can see alpine plants due to the wetland environment, and many people visit it. We hope you will enjoy the magnificent scenery in each season, such as the snowy scenery created by the harsh cold of winter and the about 300 kinds of flowers that bloom from spring to autumn! Hamanaka Town is the birthplace of Monkey Punch, the original author of "Lupin the Third", and has been revitalizing the town featuring "Lupin the Third" for more than 10 years. Lupin III wrapping buses, wrapping trains, and wrapping hire cars run throughout the city, Lupin and Inspector Zenigata signs are installed at the station, and the Monkey Punch Collection at the Hamanaka Town Cultural Center reproduces Monkey Punch's work room, and there are many exhibits where you can fully experience the world of Lupin the Third. At "Kiritappu Onsen Yuyu", there is also a sale of original goods of Lupin the Third that can only be obtained here, so it is recommended as a souvenir. Surrounded by nature, Hamanaka Town has many popular scenic sightseeing spots. "Biwase Observatory" is a spot where you can overlook the rich nature of Hamanaka Town, and the breathtaking scenery spreads out. Cape Azeti is located at the western end of the Kiritappu Peninsula and gives you a sense of the grandeur of nature. Cape Kiritappu is located in the rough waves of the Pacific Ocean. Wild sea otters live in the surrounding area, and if you're lucky, you can even see them from the promenade leading to the tip of the cape. In addition, there are campsites and relaxation places, and camping with a superb view overlooking the magnificent sea is popular. When you visit Hamanaka, please enjoy fresh seafood dishes and popular gourmet food. Kelp, salmon trout, autumn salmon, toxilaz, saury, hairy crab, hanasaki crab, Hokkai shrimp and hokki shellfish, clams, natural oysters, octopus, etc. are specialties, and fresh seafood that can only be tasted in Hamanaka Town will make tourists' tongues growl! Milk from Hamanaka Town is produced in a high-standard environment and is also used as a raw material for the world-famous ice cream brand "Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream". The umami that spreads in your mouth is unforgettable once you taste it. You can experience the charm of Hamanaka Town to the fullest at the events and festivals held throughout the year. The "Hamanaka Cherry Blossom Festival" held in late May is a popular event held at Hamanaka Cherry Blossom Park, a cherry blossom viewing spot in the town. At the Kiritappu Cape Festival held in mid-September, you can visit the Cape Kiritappu Lighthouse and taste seasonal seafood at the food stall village. Hamanaka-cho, Akkeshi-gun, Hokkaido, offers visitors an unforgettable and moving experience with the natural scenery as far as the eye can see, delicious local cuisine, and the warmth of the local residents. We will send out attractive information about Hamanaka Town, so thank you! !!
