Forest 276 Ohtaki (Date City) is a road station on Route 276, halfway between Lake Shikotsu and Lake Toya. There is a grand piano which plays on its own in front of the rest room, and it is always in action. There is a spring of pure water called Horohoro-no Megumi, which literally means the blessing of Mt. Horohoro. It is free to drink and take in bottles. The shop selling snacks, drinks and souvenirs is big. Pizza is popular at the restaurant. This road station is built with wood, like a huge log-house.
