[Orchardgrass in Teshikaga] Tender and Succulent Hamburg Steak Can Be Savored at Kawayu Onsen Station

Orchardgrass

Orchardgrass (オーチャードグラス) is a restaurant at Kawayu-Onsen Station in Teshikaga town located in the northern part of Kushiro city. Mr. Hideki Takeyama (武山 秀樹), a restaurant owner, has established the restaurant since 1987 after the Kawayu-Onsen Station truned into an unmanned station. The orchardgrass means a kind of a grass. The station is a wooden building built in 1930, and has an atmosphere such as the Showa period. A footbath is at the station, too.

The restraunt is not so large, and has an atomosphere such as an old station in the Showa era. Customer can savor meals at a former room for honored guests, so they may feel as if they transported through time. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

Akan Mashu National Park

Akan Mashu National Park (阿寒摩周国立公園) has Lake Kussharo (屈斜路湖), the largest caldera lake in Japan, Lake Mashu (摩周湖), the 6th largest caldera lake in the Japan, and Lake Akan (阿寒湖), the 7th largest caldera lake in the Japan, in the eastern part of Hokkaido, and the oldest national park in Hokkaido along with Daisestuzan National Park (大雪山国立公園) in the north part of Kushiro-Sitsugen National Park (釧路湿原国立公園), too. In the national park, there are unique mountains such as Mt. Oakandake (雄阿寒岳), Mt. Meakandake (雌阿寒岳), Mt. Akanfuji (阿寒富士), Mt. Mokoto (藻琴山), Mt. Iou (硫黄山), Mt. Mashudake (摩周岳) and Mt. Nishibetsudake (西別岳), and here is a tourist attraction on behalf of Hokkaido containing some hot spring places such as Akanko Onsen (阿寒湖温泉), Meakan Onsen (雌阿寒温泉) and Kawayu Onsen (川湯温泉). The Akan Mashu National Park is roughly divided into 4 areas, Akanko Area, Onneto Area, Mashuko Area, and Kussharoko Area. The area is 91,413 ha in total, it is very vast. It is a highlight that a scenery was borned by growing forests and lakes created by water collecting in the craters of volcanoes after the volcanoes erupting in the primitive period, and it is said that an original scenery of Hokkaido has been creadted by "Volcanos", "Forests" and "Lakes". By the way, 900 Sogen Grassland (900草原) and Tawadaira Observaton Deck (多和平展望台) that a typical secenry of Hokkaido can be enjoyed are relatively near the national park, too. Read More

I visited here around 10:00, just opening hour, on a weekday. I was the first visitor. The restaurant is crowded with visitors at lunchtime. I came to the former room for honored guests, and sat a table seat, and read a menu. Beef Stew (ビーフシチュー) was most popular, and Hamburg Steak was 2nd popular, and Rice with Hashed Meat (ハヤシライス) was 3rd popular. A soft serve ice cream seemed to be popular, too. Because the Hamburger Steak looked tasty, I ordered it. The price was JPY 1050. A plate of rice was served with the dish, too.

About 15 minutes later, the Hamburger Steak was served. A soft-boiled egg was on the hamburger steak, and its appearance looked very tasty. I ate one bite at once. It was tender and succulent, and was so good! Rich demiglace sauce had good seasoning. It was also tasty even if I ate the rice with the soft-boiled yolk and demiglace sauce. I think that the Beef Stew, the Rice with Hashed Meat and the soft serve ice cream must be very good since the hamburger steak is very good.

If you are interested in tour trips, you should visit the club tourism's website for details.
