Mashu Onsen (摩周温泉) and Akan Mashu National Park with Lake Mashu and Lake Kussharo are relatively near here, so you might as well come the restaurant during your trip.

The restaurant is not so large, and all seats are table seats, so I guess that family customers also enjoy meals. I visited here to avoided crowds for lunch around 13:00 on weekdays. No customer was at the restraunt. Most of customers are local people, so I guess that the restaurant is crowded around 12:00. Red tables standed out, and I felt an atmosphere of a good old Chinese restaurant.
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.

Stir-Fried Noodles with Starchy Sauce
When I sat at a table seat, owner's wife came, so I asked her about restaurant's recommendation, and she replied "Stir-Fried Noodles with Starchy Sauce (五目焼きそば) is sold well". Therefore I ordered it. The price was JPY 700. A cup of hot tea and a cup of cold water were served at this restaurant. Cusomers can choose whatever the customers would like. That is an interesting idea.
After waiting for about 10 minutes, and it was served. Ingredients were sliced squids, sliced bamboo shoots and sliced pork. She said "Please sprinkle vinegar over the Stir-Fried Noodles with Starchy Sauce as you like". Firstly, I ate it without the vinegar. It was light taste, and was tasty! After having eaten for a while, I sprinkled the vinegar over it. Then its taste turned into very mild. This was tasty, too.
