[Kadoya in Kushiro] Grilled Whelks and Ramen
Grilled Whelk Kadoya (つぶ焼き かど屋) is a restraunt specializing in grilled whelk (つぶ焼き専門店) in Sakae-machi, Kushiro city, and has been founded since 1967. Sakae-machi as well as Suehiro-cho is a famous entertainment district. As its name suggests, its building is in a corner of a street. The Kado means "A corner" in English, and ya means "A building" in English. Only 2 dishes are shown on a menu, and those prices are JPY 850 and JPY 600. Except those, Sake, Beer and so on are served. The restraunt has an atomosphere such as a typical good old Japanese‐style barbecue restraunt. Some counter seats and some table seats are provided. But I guess that family customers do not enjoy themselves because dishes for childred are nothing.
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. The Kushiro became incorporated with Akan town (阿寒) and Onbetsu (音別) in 2005, and has became the 3rd largest city by area in the Hokkaido. In Japan, it is the 7th latgest city by the area. The Kushiro is also well-known as a tourist city with rich nature, and has 2 very famous national parks, Kushiro-Shitsugen wetland (釧路湿原), the largest wetland in the Japan, and Lake Akan (阿寒湖) consisted by primeval forests and lava. In addition, the beautiful sunset can be seen, too, and the Kushiro is one of the three major places to see the beautiful setting sun in the world together with Manila in Philippines and Bali in Indonesia.

Grilled Whelk and Ramen
I visited here around 18:00, just opening hour, and I was the first customer at that day. I sat at a counter seat, and ordered the grilled whelk and the ramen. About 5 minutes later, grilled whelks dished up on a wooden plate like a chopping board was served. During about half a century, they have been grilling whelks, so I think that exclusive wooden plates are prepared to put whelks well. A staff told me "Because the whelk is very hot, you held it down with a paper napkin, and pull it out with a toothpick. Finally you should drink rest of whelk juice in a shell". The whelks were tasty, so I was going to get hooked on this taste.
The ramen was served after the Grilled Whelks. Black soup stood up. I guessed that the ramen soup might use grilled whelk sauce, and it had a strong salt taste. The dish looked like a typical Kushiro ramen with using seafood broth and thin noodles. I recommended a rich taste evangelist to this ramen.
