We were in the Biei region and have booked a hotel at Shirogane onsen. The view point is just 10 mins drive from Shirogane and can be combined with a visit to the blue pond if you are not staying in the area.
From the view points, you can see the daisetsuzan mountains up close and the unblocked views of forest all the way towards eastern hokkaido. When we were there, there were still ice/snow on the mountains and this made the views so special to us.
The kids had a great time playing on the leftover ice/snow on the base of the mountains - yes, this sounds silly but we are from the tropical climate.
The views from Shirogane to the viewpoint are also great and there is a parking place on the left about 3 km from Shirogane. You can then walk up or down the road to enjoy the views.
