This is local specialty products " deep water shrimps.
Tastes is fantastic. How to eat?
You can eat row style such as "Sashimi or Sushi.
You can also boil and grill them.
My favorite style is put in the soup.
Soup stock form deep water shrimp are excellent.
Autumn is a just season for this shrimp.
We always wait for the season of deep water shrimp coming every year.
This is again, JR Mashike station.
This is very old and small.
JR Hokkaido decided to abolish this station coming this December.
I agree that this station is old and few people use but I felt disappointed because traveler usually love this kind of refined atmosphere, scenery.
This is old building and registered as a important cultural assets in Japan.
This was a house for rich family who succeeded with herring fishing.
100 years ago in Japan, herring had a same value as money so coastal city such as Mashike, Otaru, Rumoi and so on were prospered by herring fishing.
