Akkeshi One Day Tour (厚岸1日ツアー)

This is a one day tour of Akkeshi, through which I believe you can fully enjoy the town. How do you like it? Please leave your comment!

①Akkeshi Station
When you arrive at JR Akkeshi Station,

please take a picture with this panel! Yes! Akkeshi is an oyster town!!

②Yabu Soba (藪蕎麦)
Then you should drop by this soba shop in front of the station, and

enjoy oyster soba↓, or an oyster bowl! Yummy x 2!! See the details→

③Cape Aikappu (愛冠岬
Then let's get started with Cape Aikappu!

If you ring the bells with your boyfriend or girl friend, you will be happy forever!

On the way to the cape, you may encounter wildlife such as shika deer

④Benten Shrine (弁天神社)
On the way back to the station area, we can see Benten Shrine from Akkeshi Ohashi Bridge (厚岸大橋). Looks like it is floated on the ocean, but actually it is on Kakijima Island (牡蠣島), and enshrined with Benzaitenza statue (弁財天座像), an important cultural asset of Japan.

⑤Fish Market (漁業組合市場)
Well, well, well, let's enjoy seafood at the fish market, located near the station, too!

Akkeshi is a paradise of seafood such as oysters, scallop, prawns, and so on!

⑥Marine Museum (海事記念館)
Within a walking distance from the fish market, there is Marine Museum.

We can learn the history of Akkeshi and its fisheries.

⑦Conchiglie (コンキリエ)
This roadside station is on the hill, and 

we can enjoy the ocean and the townscape!

Let's enter the building. On the first floor, there is a souvenir corner with a wide variety of oyster items.

Personally, I recommend delicious ice cream there↓ See the details→

 On the second floor, we can enjoy seafood BBQ

Scallops, oysters, abalone, sea urchin, Pacific saury, and you name it! See the details→

⑧Ujiie Machiaijyo (氏家待合所)
Last but not least, please get an oyster rice box lunch at the dining.

They make this box lunch depending on your train time! I recommend you to make a reservation in advance! See the details→

How do you like the tour?
Please fully enjoy the town if you have chance to visit there!!
