The Sarufutsu is the most scallop landed town in Japan, so it is famous for the scallop. Fishermen discharge the scallops into the sea, and they raise those up for 5 years in the sea. Natural scallops that are not cultured scallops turn into sweet thick flesh with high quality.
North Okhotsk Prefectural Natural Park
North Okhotsk Prefectural Natural Park (北オホーツク自然公園) is a natural park among Sarufustu village, Hamatonbetsu town and Esashi town in the northern part of Hokkaido, and has been designated as the prefectural natural park since 1968. The area is 3,927 ha. Groups of lakes and swamps such as Lake Kutcharo (クッチャロ湖), wild flowers in Beniya Primitive Flower Garden (ベニヤ原生花園), and wild birds such as Motacilla Flava and Swan can be observed in this area. A lot of tourists do not come. The natural park has been chosen as one of 100 Unexplored Regions in Japan (日本の秘境100選), and is contained in 500 Important Wetlands in Japan (日本の重要湿地500). A straight road without signals is one of worth seeing places, too. Tourists can enjoy the nature of the typical Hokkaido without being crowded. I think that here is a little-known tourist attractions in the northern Hokkaido. Read More
The shop is not large, souvenirs and foods are displayed closely. Scallop Rice (ホタテめし) and Cowberry Soft Serve Ice Cream (コケモモソフトクリーム) are popular, but Grilled Scallops on A Skewer looked tasty, so I ordered it. The price was JPY 420. 2 adductor muscles were stuck on a skewer. A smell of the scallop grilled with pouring soy sauce was appetizing. The adductor muscle with thick flesh, and was tasty! The Sarufutsu used to be called the poorest village in the Japan, but a yearly income of the fishermen is JPY 20-30 million because of the scallop. The scallop is great!

In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol.
