We left the roadside station of Biei Town and headed to Shirogane Hot Spring Village at the foot of Mt Tokachidake. A beautifully-designed bridge connected the national road and the trail.
The roadside station of Biei Town near "the blue pond" is made of ferro-concrete, stones and wood. The deck could be used for a variety of events near the building.
The rain fall and the clouds were going away rapidly ahead of us heading to the north. The surface of the road was dry when we were passing by.
Quality sweets are sold in the stand of "Biei Senka" in Biei Town. Dairy foods, cakes, puddings, you name it. Long drive requires some breaks for safety.
The clouds were turning brighter and the blue sky appeared above us as if showing the way to progress.
Beautiful red roses were displayed so nicely in the simply-designed building of "Biei Senka".
Above is the out look of the cozy log-house cafe La Malta in Biei Town. We left the cafe and headed to "Biei Senka" where so many kinds of quality produces and products were sold.
One of the big draw of the cozy cafe in Biei Town was a salad bowl in a huge bread shaped like a face of bear. Females might say "Pretty !" and take photos for updating their SNS.
I heard that the big draw of the cafe in the residential area of Biei Town was a unique dish with special sauce.
