    Hokkaido Abashirishi Minamisanjouhigashi 4-chome
    The Roadside Station Ryuhyo Kaido Abashiri, situated on the Abashiri Port Line Road and located at the mouth of Abashiri River, is a good spot for sightseeing with views over the Sea of Okhotsk and Shiretoko. Here you can get tourist information and buy local farm produce and processed goods. The drift ice sightseeing & icebreaker ship Aurora, which runs from the latter half of January through to the end of March every year, departs from a dock on the Abashiri River in front of the Road Station. It’s worth checking their departure times before you travel.

    The rest stop along the pier is a nice stop to find a wide selection of locally produced items from Abashiri. The staff are helpful and some speak very good English, making it easy to understand...

    メインの建物の後ろ側丘を少し上がったたら、囲いの中でポニーがのんびり草を食んでいました。 かぼちゃのアーチや花畑なんかもあって、散策にいいかもです。

Hokkaido Main Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
