Bihoro Pass and Highway 243

Bihoro (??) is an insufferably obscure farming town in northern Hokkaido, Japan.

bihoro Travel Guide :

Bihoro

Get in

Bihoro

By train

Bihoro is on the JR Hokuseki Line (????) from Asahikawa to Abashiri.

Bihoro

By road

Bihoro is a major road junction and highways lead from here to Abashiri on the northern coast, to Teshikaga (Akan National Park) and to Asahikawa and Sounkyo Onsen (Daisetsuzan National Park). Buses run along most roads but only very intermittently.

Bihoro

See

  • Bihoro Pass (??? Bihoro-t?ge). On Highway 243 between Bihoro and Teshikaga, this is Bihoro's sole claim to fame, affording views over Lake Kussharo in the nearby Akan National Park. The pass was also canonized in the eponymous enka (Japanese folk song), which now plays on repeat in the small service area near the pass.
  • Bihoro Agricultural Museum (?????? Bihoro-n?gy?kan). 1 (http://www.ohotuku26.or.jp/bihoro/bibot/ex_e/index_e.html). With exhibits like "Modern Agricultural Machines" and "Let's Play With BIBOT", this is best reserved for those really rainy days. Admission ¥300, open 9 AM to 5 PM daily.
Bihoro

Do

  • T?ge-no-Yu Bihoro (??????). 2 (http://www.ohotuku26.or.jp/bihoro/telguide/458.html) . The inevitable hot spring, but a fairly modern and pleasant operation — and yes, that does mean "Pass Hot Water Bihoro". Entry ¥500, or get a set ticket which includes a 15-minute return bus ride to JR Bihoro station for ¥900.
Bihoro

Buy

Bihoro's speciality is kumazasa-cha (???), a type of herbal tea made from the kumazasa (lit. "bear grass") leaf that grows abundantly in this harsh climate. Steeply priced at ¥840 per bag, but worth a try —

Bihoro

Eat & Drink

  • Gurutto Panorama Bihoro (???????????). The fancy name of the highway service area at Bihoro Pass... but in addition to the souvenir and fried-everything-on-a-stick vendors downstairs, there's a decent restaurant upstairs which serves kumazasa tea along with your meal.
Bihoro

Sleep

  • Minshuku Tar?-an (?????). Tel. 01527-3-4310. A tiny minshuku (capacity 7 people) right across the street from the JR station. ¥5000 for one night with two good meals, considerably better value than the youth hostel.
  • Bihoro Youth Hostel (?????????). Tel. 01527-3-2560, 3 (http://www.jyh.or.jp/english/hokaido/bihoro/). Inconveniently located even by Bihoro standards, over 2 kilometers on foot south from the train station. ¥2940 per night for HI members.
Bihoro

Contact

The small tourism office in the train station will be overjoyed at seeing an actual tourist. They can also book accommodation for you.

Bihoro

Get out

  • Akan National Park — Just across the Bihoro Pass are a number of sights actually worth seeing.
