[Utoro Gyokyo Fujinbu Shokudo in Shari] Grilled Atka Mackerel Set Meal with Atka Mackerel Putting on Fat

Utoro Gyokyo Fujinbu Shokudo

Utoro Gyokyo Fujinbu Shokudo (ウトロ漁協婦人部食堂) is a long-established restraunt founded in 1970 in Utoro Fishery Port, Shari town, and near Godzilla-iwa Rock (ゴジラ岩), Oronko-iwa Rock (オロンコ岩) and Utoro Onsen (ウトロ温泉). Utoro Fishery Cooperative Woman Department (ウトロ漁業協同組合女性部) runs it, and Ms. Yasuko Takahashi (高橋 泰子) is a director of the department. Union member's wives operate the restraunt. The Utoro Gyokyo Fujinbu Shokudo is a restraunt for fishery workers, but it is popular with tourists since fresh seafood can be eaten. They serve just-catching sea urchin from May to August, so a lot of people come to eat it.

Oronko-iwa Rock

Oronko-iwa Rock (オロンコ岩) is a huge rock with 58 m in height in Shari town, Shiretoko Peninsula. Godzilla-iwa Rock (ゴジラ岩) and Sankaku-iwa Rock (三角岩) are around the tip of Cape Utoro (ウトロ崎), and Utoro Port (ウトロ港) is built around here. This area has some huge rocks, and Utoro Onsen Resort is nearby here, too. The Oronko-iwa Rock is well-known as a good place to see the sunset, and a wooden stairway is built from a trailhead to the top of the rock. A wooden path, the wooden stairway, a restroom and a parking lot are on the site. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge. In a winter, the wooden stairway is closed. Read More

Utoro is one of the 3 major superb views in Hokkaido together with Shakotan and Benbe Rebun (Rebunge, Toyoura), and has been well-known as a scenic area since a long time ago. Hot springs were succeeded in drilling in 1971, and the Utoro Onsen has been developed as a tourist hub for Shiretoko Goko Lakes and Kamuiwakka Hot Falls, etc. in the north side of the Shiretoko Peninsula, and is a popular hot-spring resort for enjoying the sun set over the Sea of Okhotsk and mountains of Rausu.

The restraunt next to the fishery port has an atomosphere such as a typical port restraunt, and is not large. The appearance and the interior decoration look good old. Seats are only counter seats, so I suppose that family customers and a large number of people can hardly enjoy meals in a busy time. By the way, a highway bus, Eagle Liner (イーグルライナー), runs between Sapporo and the Utoro.

    List of Means of Transportation

    Refer to following a company for the highway bus service between the Utoro and the Sapporo. Refer to following the means of the transportation.

    Shiretoko National Park

    Shiretoko National Park (知床国立公園) at the northeastern edge of Japan main land is a national park between Shari town and Rausu town in the the northeastern part of Hokkaido. Most northern part of Shiretoko Peninsula has been desinged as the national park since 1964, and has also been designed World Natural Heritage Site, one of only 4 world natural heritage sites in Japan, since 2005. In the national park, there are Shiretoko Mountain Range (知床連山) such as Mt. Rausudake (羅臼岳), Mt. Chinishibetsudake (知西別岳), Mt. Iou (硫黄山) and Mt. Shiretokodake (知床岳), and here is a tourist attraction on behalf of Hokkaido containing some hot spring places such as Aidomari Onsen (相泊温泉), Seseki Onsen (瀬石温泉), Rausu Onsen (羅臼温泉) and Iwaobetsu Onsen (岩尾別温泉). The Shiretoko National Park is roughly divided into 2 areas, Shari Area and Rausu Area. The area is about 39,000 ha in total. A deep forest that wild animals such as Brown Bears, Yezo Deers and Blakiston's Hish-owls inhabit, Steep cliffs with about 100 m in height that separet the sea from mountains, the sea that marine life such as Salmons and Whales swim in, and those closely related to each other create great nature views. Because the Shiretoko means "The end of the earth" in Ainu language, I can understand the reason that it is said to be an unexplored region. Read More

    Grilled Atka Mackerel Set Meal

    I visited here around 14:00 on a weekday. 4 groups of customers enjoyed their meals. I sat a counter seat beside a window, and read a menu. I was unable to make a decision whether I should eat Sea Urchin Rice Bowl (ウニ丼) or Grilled Atka Mackerel Set Meal (ホッケ定食), but I gave up the sea urchin rice bowl because of a high price, so I ordered the Grilled Atka Mackerel Set Meal finally. The price was JPY 1200.

    About 7 or 8 minutes later, the set meal was served. It contained a dish of a grilled atka mackerel, a bowl of rice, a dish of pickles, a dish of salted suttlefish and a bowl of spat scallop miso soup. The grilled atka mackerel was bigger than I expected. The fish meat was easy to break with chopsticks, and was easy to strip from fish skin. I ate a bite of it immediately. The sruface was crispy, and the chewy fish meat was put on fat. It was tasty! The atka mackerel was full of good sea flavor. I had finished eating the set meal without delay. Thanks for the tasty meal!

    Tourists that sat next to me had a conversation each other. Their father wanted his family to eat seafood at this restraunt because Sea Urchin Rice Bowl eaten by him last year was very tasty. He visited this restaurant with his family this year. Because he said many times "It was very delicious when I ate it with a kingly zest", I should order the Sea Urchin Rice Bowl after all. Sanshoku-don Rice Bowl (3色丼) was also popular. All dishes looked tasty.
