Welcome to the Hilly Town of Biei

A request to everyone visiting Biei!
The undulating hills of Biei may look like the flower fields of vast parkland, but most of the land is actually the private property of farmers. In order to be able to pass-on these rural landscapes to future generations, it is important never to encroach into the farmers’ fields and to always view the scenery and enjoy taking photographs from paved areas. (Painstaking efforts are being made to grow crops to enable safe and delicious farm produce to reach you dinner tables.)
Furthermore, when stopping your car on narrow roads, please take care so as not to obstruct the passage of tractors and other farm vehicles. If you are requested to move your vehicle, please do so promptly. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation with regard to these matters.
