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.

The gallery showcases Tadashi Shimada's photographic prints in large format capturing the detail and colour that cannot be reproduced in a book. The gallery rotates with the seasons and focus on the birds of Hokkaido, many found locally as well as covering other areas of Hokkaido. On occasion works featured by other artists will be shown. 

All prints seen in the gallery can be purchased in a number of sizes and mount options. A portfolio of his other works can also be viewed and prints ordered. 

As well as prints the gallery also sells Tadashi Shimadas most recent photo books as well as limited numbers of older rarer published books. Book can also be purchased online here

All books purchased at the gallery and through the online store will be signed by Tadashi Shimada.
