[Hama-no-Ie in Oshamanbe] Good Flavor of Crab Rice Spreads out in My Mouth
Oshokuji Hama-no-Ie (お食事濱乃家) is a restaurant facing National Route 5 in Oshamanbe town located in the northwestern part of Muroran city, and is relatively near Oshamanbe Onsen and Oshamanbe Station. Kanefuku Hamagata Suisan corp. (有限会社 カネフク浜形水産) runs it, and opens a business as a directly managed store of a wholesaler, and is popular for selling fresh reasonable marine products such as hairy crab. The Hama-no-Ie has a restaurant and a sale place of marine products at the building, and a large vessel-like fish tank catches visitros' eyes. Fresh marine prorducts such as hairy crab preserve in the fish tank. Counter seats and small separate Japanese style tables are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.
Oshamanbe Onsen (長万部温泉) is a hot spring town located in the northwestern part of Muroran city. 7 hot spring facilities are built in the back side of Oshamanbe Station. There are Oshamanbe Library, Oshamanbe Sports Center, restraunts, cafes, a convenience store near here. It is the origin of the Oshamanbe Onsen that hot spring gushed out when they prospected for a natural gas vein in 1955. It is unusual that the hot springs have begun to spring out in such a downtown. Oshamanbe Onsen Cooperative Association manages a hot spring source, and distributes the hot springs to each hot spring facilities, so all hot spring facilities have same hot springs. Read More

Speaking of the Oshamanbe, "Crab Rice (かにめし)" is well-known. It is a dish scattered with boiled crab meats on rice, and has been famous as a station lunch in Japan. The crab rice is well-known together with squid stuffed with rice (いかめし) in Mori among the 3 best lunch boxes in the Japanese station lunch. I visited to eat it at the Hama-no-Ie popular with a lots of local people around 13:00 on a weekday. I sat at a table seat, and ordered crab rice immediately. The price was JPY 1100.
About 15 minutes later, the Crab Rice was served with a dish of pickles and a bowl of miso soup. A small red ume, yellow omelette, green pea and brown shiitake mushroom were on rice covered with boiled pink crab meats, and the appearance sharpened my appetite. I ate a sip of it immediately. Good flavor of the crab meats was mixed with sweetness of the rice, and those spread out in my mouth. It was tasty! I had finished eating it without delay. Thanks for the tasty meal!
