かつて北海道は、豊かな森と湿原におおわれたアイヌ・モシリ(人間の豊かな島)

Hokkaido was once known as “Ainu Moshir’” or The People’s Bountiful Island, blanketed with abundant forests and wetlands.

 

石狩川中流域に広がる美唄の地もまた、清流がそそぎ渡り鳥が飛来、沼などには多くのピパ(カラス貝)が生息する自然豊かな地

Bibai extends from the central Ishikari River basin, and it is a land rich in nature where clear streams flow, where migratory birds choose to stop, where you’ll find many “pipa” mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) in bogs and other wetlands.

 

現在も自然が多く残る美唄市は、一刻一刻と移り変わっていく四季のいろどりが、私たちに多くのことを教えてくれます

And nature stays with us even today in the city of Bibai, her make up changing moment by moment while she teaches us many things.

 

そんな美唄の魅力をひとつずつ丁寧に、たくさんの人たちへ伝えたい。そして、この土地に触れてほしい。
そんな想いでご紹介していきます。

We’d like to pass on the attractions of Bibai to many people, one by one, with delicate precision.  And we’d like you to come see this place for yourself.  With this in mind, we’d like to introduce Bibai.
