Rebuntou Onsen

Rebuntou Onsen (礼文島温泉) is a hot spring place in Rebun Island (礼文島) located in the northern part of Hokkaido. Rebuntou Onsen Usuyuki-no-Yu (礼文島温泉 うすゆきの湯) is around 200 m away from Kafuka Ferry Terminal. Around here is the center of the rebun, and restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops, bars with a surcharge and Izakaya are built. Kita-no-Kanaria Park (北のカナリアパーク) and Momoiwa Observatry (桃岩展望台) are relatively near here, too. By the way, Speaking of tasty restaurants in the Rebun, Robata Chidori (炉ばた ちどり), Atoi Shokudo (あとい食堂) and Kaisendokoro Kafuka (海鮮処 かふか) are popular in particular. I ate foods at the Kaisendokoro Kafuka and Futaba Shokudo (双葉食堂), and those were tasty.

Kaisendokoro Kafuka

Kaisendokoro Kafuka (海鮮処かふか) is a seafood restaurant in Rebun Island. Kafuka fishery cooperative (香深漁協) runs it, and there is a building near Kafuka Port. It is popular for eating fresh seafood. I visited here around 11:00 on weekdays. A waitress asked me whether I grilled the seafood at first when I entered the restraunt. They seem to show me to a room of Japanese-style barbecue cooked in front of customers if I want to grill a sea urchin and an atka mackerel and eat those. But I wanted to eat a rice bowl, they showed me to my table at the restraunt. The restraunt was so large, and there were many tables and family customers seem to enjoy. Article is here

Futaba Shokudo

Futaba Shokudo (双葉食堂) in Funadomari-mura is located in the northern part of Rebun island. This is a long-established restraunt founded in 1960. They serve ramen (ラーメン), buckwheat noodle (そば), curry and rice (カレーライス) and rice bowls. It is not the restaurant for tourists and is the restaurant which local people use. Therefore the opening hour is not fixed in particular, too, and it seemed to open the restraunt around 12:30 on this day. I heard that the ramen of Futaba Shokudo was tasty and visited around 13:30 on weekdays. Article is here
