Kaisenkobo Tarakoya Kojohama (海鮮工房たらこ家 虎杖浜) is a seafood processing store facing Pacific Ocean in Kojohama, Shiraoi town located between Tomakomai city and Noboribetsu city, and is near Aroyo Onsen at Kojohama Onsen. Matsuda Fishery corp. (松田水産株式会社) founded in 1913 runs it. Speaking of the Kojohama, salted cod roe (たらこ) is famous, and some seafood processing stores open a business, and the Tarakoya is one of those.
The Tarakoya has a restaurant and a sale place of marine products at the building. The restraunt is not so large, but all seats are tables, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.
Kojohama Onsen (虎杖浜温泉) is a hot spring town near Noboribetsu Onsen in Shiraoi town located in the western part of Tomakomai city. The Kojohama Onsen is roughly divided into 2 parts, Takeura district (竹浦地区) and Kojohama distirct (虎杖浜地区), and about 30 hot spring facilities dot for 6 km along National Route 36. There are few large accommodations, and almost small-sized accommodations are built in residential area. Except the hot spring facilities, restaurants, cafes, Izakaya, bars with a surcharge, convenience stores and souvenir shops dot in the residential area, and Tarakoya Kojohama (たらこ家虎杖浜), Kita-no-Lamptei (北のランプ亭), Hashimoto Coffee-Kan (はしもと珈琲館), Miharu (三春) and Sobakiri Yamada (そば切りやま田) are popular in particular. Kojohama is famous for Salted Cod Roe (たらこ), so there are many seafood store here and there, and are crowded with tourists. Cuttlefish Rice Cracker (いかせんべい) is popular, too.

Salted Cod Roe Rice Bowl
I visited here to eat the salted cod roe around 11:00, just restraunt open time, on a weekday. 4 groups of customers enjoyed their meals. The seats were almost full. The Tarakoya was popular after all. They served some meals using salted cod roe on a menu, so I ordered Salted Cod Roe Rice Bowl (たらこ丼) in those at a cash register. The price was JPY 1404. The water was self-service.
About 10 minutes later, the Salted Cod Roe Rice Bowl was served with a bowl of clear soup and a dish of fried cod roe rolled in a laver (たらこの海苔巻き揚げ) . Rice was covered with salted cod roe and raw cod, and I felt it was luxury. I thougt that it was called "Oyako-don (親子丼)" in a sense.
I ate a piece of the salted cod roe immediately, and it tasted too salty. Only the salted cod roe was hard to eat. But rice together with the salted cod roe was very tasty, and sweetness of the rice went well with saltiness of the salted cod roe. I adjusted a quantity of the cod roe to a quantity of the rice, and ate it. In addition, the Fried Cod Roe Rolled in Laver was crispy, and was delicious. Thanks for the tasty meal!
