Speaking of the Rishiri, Kombu or Mirupisu (ミルピス) are famous. The mirupisu is well-known as a homemade lactic acid drink sold only in the Rishiri Island. Mrs. Yachiyo Morihara (森原八千代) that is also known as Obachan (おばちゃん * A lady) is a shop owner. After they discontinued their ranch, they have sold the Mirupisu since 1965.

A building like a barn at the innermost place of a private house facing Hokkaido Road 105 is their store. The appearance of the building and the interior decoration have an old atmosphere. The store is not so large, and some cards for autographs are hung on a wall, so it is popular after all. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy drinks.

There are some means of transportation for the island tourism, for example, a sightseeing bus and a fixed-route bus managed by Soya bus (宗谷バス), a sightseeing taxi, a rental car, a rental motor scooter and a rental bicycle. I went around the Rishiri Island by the rental motor scooter, and it was very comfortable. By the way, if tourists raise their hand in the case of fixed-route bus happening to pass, they can get on the bus without a bus stop, and can get off the bus without a bus stop.

    Mirupisu

    Since this store became famous, I visited here around 10:00 on a weekday. When I entered the store, there was nobody at the store. A few minutes later, Mrs. Morihara came to here. She told me "When a door of the store opens, her home chime sounds". I sat a table seat, and ordered a bottle of the Mirupisu. The price was JPY 350.

    She also served a small bowl of Kappa Ebisen (かっぱえびせん * Japanese famous snack) on the house. I opened a cover of the milpisu with an exclusive tool, and drank it immediately. It tasted sweet-sour milk flavor. The aftertaste was light and refreshing. It was tasty!
