[Paisible in Kushiro] Tasty Gelatos Made Most of Original Taste of Ingredients
Gelateria Paisible (ジェラテリア・ペジブル) is a popular western confectionery store run by Kushiro Nozomi Social Welfare Service Corporation Association (社会福祉法人釧路のぞみ協会) that supports for handicapped job seekers in Futaba-cho, Kushiro city, and they have opened as a gelato section since 2010. They serve cakes, baked confectioneries and gelatos. The store is not so large, and a cake-aked confectionery sales place and a gelato sales place are at the building, and a place for custmers to enjoy foods and drinks is provided, too. Especially, the gelato has a good reputation.
By the way, a direct bus does not run between Sapporo or New Chitose Airport and the Kushiro. But highway buses "Star Light Kushiro-go (スターライト釧路号)" and "Kuhsiro Limited Express New Star-go (釧路特急ニュースター号)" run between the Sapporo and the Kushiro, and Sunrise Asahikawa-Kushiro-go (サンライズ旭川・釧路号), an express bus, runs between the Kushiro and Asahikawa, and Sweets Liner-go (スイーツライナー号) runs between Obihiro and Tancho Kushiro Airport, and Senpoku-go (釧北号), an express bus, runs between the Kitami and the Kushiro, and Akan Airport Liner (阿寒エアポートライナー) runs between Lake Akan and the Tancho Kushiro Airport. Besides, Rent-a-car can be rented around Kushiro Station and Kushiro Airport. An airplane flies between Kushiro Airport and Okadama Air Port, and an airplane flies between the Kushiro Airport and New Chitose Airport. As for transport facilities for the Kushiro-Shitsugen Wetland sightseeing, Kushiro-shitsugen train Norokko-go (くしろ湿原ノロッコ号) and Kushiro-shitsugen bus Isshu-go (釧路湿原一周号) run.
Kushiro (釧路) that about 170,000 people live is the 5th largest fisheries city in Hokkaido, and is one of regional hub cities of the Eastern Hokkaido area.

I visited here to eat gelato around 16:00 on a weekday. 3 cars stopped on a road in front of the store. 3 groups of customers lined up when I entered the store. All of them ordered gelatos. I waited at the checkout line.
About 10 minutes later, my turn came. They served different 6 types of gelato flavor every day, and the price of a scoop gelato was about JPY 340, the price of a double scoop gelato was JPY 370, the price of a triple scoop gelato was JPY 400. Customers could choose mong a soft serve cream cone, a plastic cup or a waffle cone. I ordered a triple scoop gelato, and chose Strawberry and Milk Flavor (いちごミルク * the strawberry produced in the Kushiro), Fresh Milk Flavor (搾りたて牛乳 * the milk produced in the nakashibetsu) and Pistachio Flavor (ピスタチオ). In the case of ordering the triple scoop gelato, customers could choose only the soft serve cream cone. I decide to eat my gelato at the place for customers to enjoy foods.
The gelatos were light and tender, and those textures were good. The Fresh Milk Flavor milked a cow in Yamamoto Ranch (山本牧場), Yorouushi that is famous for milk, Nakashibetsu town was the just right sweetness and, was refreshing taste. The Strawberry and Milk Flavor had a good balance of the sourness and the sweetness, and seeds of the strawberry provided a excellent accent. The Pistachio Flavor called the Queen of nuts had the strong taste of the pistachio, and was tasty! Because I felt that the gelato was large in quantity, it was attractive that the gelato was a good buy. Thanks for the tasty gelatos!
