My visited place is the restaurant on the 2nd floor. The ceiling is high, so the restaurant is spacious. Table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals. By the way, a nonstop bus, Eagle Liner (イーグルライナー), runs between Sapporo and Utoro.

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 Pike Conger Sea Eel Rice Bowl

I heard that the Grilled Pike Conger Sea Eel Rice Bowl was very popular with motorcycle tourists that tour around Hokkaido, so I visited here around 15:00 on a weekday. There was a few customers. I sat at a table seat, and ordered it. The price was JPY 1100.

The black pike conger (黒ハモ) is a sea eel family, and is a deep-sea fish. A bigger black pike conger seems to be an individual of 80 cm length. The fish is seldom sold at markets in Japan, and is rare ingredient. Except Shiretoko Peninsula, black pike conger dishes are served at Hiroo and Kushiro.

2 Slices of Broiled Fish on Rice

About 15 minutes later, the rice bowl was served with a bowl of miso soup and a dish of pickles. The appearance looked a rice bowl topped with grilled eel (うな重). I ate a slice of bolied black pike conger immediately. The taste also resembled the rice bowl topped with grilled eel. It was tasty! A white flesh put on fat. Sauce was not too spicy, and was too sweet, so the taste was just right for me. I ate the rice and the grilled pike conger sea eel with the sauce together, and it was also tasty. The rice went well with the seauce. I could not stop eating. I thought that this dish was worth eating in the Shiretoko. Thanks for the tasty meal!

By the way, Club Tourism (クラブツーリズム), a Japanese tour travel agency, provides various types of tours such as day trip tours or ordinary tours. In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol. Choosen tourist attractions are national parks such as Rishiri and Rebun, Shiretoko, and popular tourist places such as Furano and Biei, and some activities such as hiking and fruit picking are also enjoyed depending on seasons. If you are interested in tour trips, you should visit the club tourism's website for details.
