Roadside Station Ryuhyo-Kaido Abashiri

Michi no Eki Road Station
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.
