The hotel’s outdoor private bath, Abashiri-limited drift ice beer, the nearest JR unmanned station (Kitahama) to the Sea of Okhotsk, and the If You Are the One, cannot have a better day.
It is recommended to stay here for three or four days and feel it.
During this trip to Hokkaido, what I look forward to most is to see drift ice on an icebreaker. With seagulls and drift ice, this trip is worthwhile. The ship has three floors, and the lowest level is the closest to drift ice. It is the wind and the cold. After watching it, I hide in the cabin to keep warm, and then come out to continue to capture the beauty of ice and snow.
The Oktoberfest is the first eve of the Hokkaido Abashiri Summer Festival. The only commercial street in the urban area of Abashiri was opened as a pedestrian street. Dozens of shops are lined up, selling beer, drinks, and various skewers, and a long table is set up at both ends of the street for diners to drink and drink. The skewers attracted local residents, especially the office workers, who went straight to the Oktoberfest after get off work, and regarded the pedestrian street as an izakaya for gatherings after get off work.

Yesterday’s blizzard left us a lot of regrets at Lake Mashu, but today’s weather was very good. We took the Drift Ice Monogatari all the way north to Abashiri, the northernmost place in Hokkaido, and sailed on an icebreaker on the sea. Floes are like cotton fields. Can I say that I pretended to go to Antarctica?
This is very small, but worth a quick wander around if it co-incides with your visit to Abashiri for the drift ice. It is about a 10 minute walk from the port.
