Fresh fish awaits you at Kushiro Wharf

Kushiro Fisherman'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 Kushiro 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 has fine, fresh ingredients and distinct dishes that make the most of them. Try sanmanma, which is saury marinated in a special sauce and grilled over charcoal, then served on rice. For a sashimi experience to remember, walk back toward the station and visit Kushiro Washo Ichiba market. You can buy a bowl of rice and wander among the stalls to choose from a wide variety of freshly cooked seafood.

In the area

Walk along the river to discover a large round greenhouse called EGG (Ever Green Garden). Relax in the beautiful garden and then head to the excellent Kushiro Art Museum Hokkaido just 300 meters away.
