Access to Mushing Works by local bus from Obihiro city

Updated: Oct 17

I do understand well that for foreigner, taking a local bus is concerning. I hope this blog helps you coming from Obihiro 帯広 to my kennel by local bus 拓殖バス.

This is a Obihiro Bus Terminal 帯広バスターミナル, in front of JR Obihiro Station north side 帯広駅の北側.


There are several sign board in the terminal, take #4 for going Lake Shikaribetsu and Mushing Works.


Before you get on the bus, you should get a reasonable ticket at the office.

For morning tour, take the #51 bus at 07:52.

For afternoon tour, take the #51 bus at 11:00.


For Sun set tour, there isn't a bus for going back to Obihiro city. I recommend you drive a car by yourself. There are car rental companies next to the bus terminal. There are also car rental companies at Obihiro air port.
