Kushiro Fisherman's Wharf 釧路フィッシャーマンズワーフ
Fresh fish awaits you at Kushiro Wharf
Kushiro Fishermen's Wharf and the nearby Washo Fish Market offer some of the best seafood in eastern Hokkaido making it a must-visit for foodies.
How to Get There
The Kuroshiro Fisherman's Wharf is accessible by train.
It is a 15-minute walk from Kushiro Station. Come out of the main entrance and walk straight up the main street, Kita Odori. The Fisherman's Wharf is on your right before the Nusamai Bridge.
Blessed with the bounty of the oceans
Kushiro knows good food, and they have got their own unique styles for you to savor. Try zangi, possibly the best fried chicken in Japan, and sanmanma, charcoal-grilled mackerel over rice. For a sashimi experience to remember, walk back toward the station and pop into Kushiro Washo Ichiba market. There you can buy a bowl of rice and wander among the stalls to choose from a huge selection of fresh favorites straight from the sea.
In the area
Walk along the river to discover a large round greenhouse called Ever-Green-Garden. Relax in the beautiful garden and then head to the excellent Kushiro Art Museum Hokkaido just 300 meters away.
