The Bird Watching cafe is situated close to the Chitose river. From the cafe you can view the forest and all the birds and animals that live in the area. The cafe also has a purpose built bird hide from which you can photograph the animals at close range. 

We serve a variety of hot sandwiches and sweets with coffee, tea, cold drinks, beer and wine. 

Also housed in the same building is the Tadashi Shimada Nature photo gallery showcasing his work as a photographer of birds both locally in Hokkaido and other international works.

I spent the day this time taking video of the Chipmunk from the bird hide using a 400mm lens and Canon 5dmkii with magic lantern installed for greater video function. 

It approached very close to the bird hide (about half a metre away) and was not phased by us at all. During the video it was digging around and found a walnut buried by an Ezo Squirrel. It couldn't get to the nut inside so after some time abandoned it. Later on the Ezo Squirrel returned and found its nut uncovered.... Both did not pay any attention to each other.
