    Shakotan Peninsula

    Shakotan Peninsula (積丹半島) is a peninsula located in the northwestern part of Otaru city, and has been designated as Niseko-Shakotan-Otaru Kaigan Quasi-National Park (ニセコ積丹小樽海岸国定公園) because of a precious complicated coastline with steep cliffs. The sea of the Shakotan is very beautiful, and looks clear blue, so everybody call Shakotan Blue (シャコタンブルー). A traffic used to be inconvenient in the old days, and tourists rarely visited here. People are easy to access the Shakotan Peninsula as well as Shiretoko Peninsula (知床半島) at present, but it is called an unexplored region because it would not develop very much. Read More

    Since foods were smoked, I supposed that I could eat all body, but it was different. Shells surely had a firm place and a soft place. I cut a shell with scissors. To be frank, there were few crab meats, but a smoked fragrance was appetizing. In addition, rich brown meat was too tasty! Thanks for the tasty smoked food!

    Smoked Sweet Shrimp

    I purchased a pack of Smoked Sweet Shrimps, and planned to eat those outdoor immediately. A break space was established at an edge of eaves, and it was usable freely. Thejust fished sweet prawns were smoked with only salt. First I ate one bite. Since there was not particularly strong taste, I guessed that the taste was only smoked sweet shrimp. However, salty taste gradually spread out in my mouth whenever I ate one bite. In addition, I put smoked prawns in my mouth in sequence, and could not stop eating. This was addictive slow food. Thanks for the tasty smoked food!
