Popular for its juicy hamburgers, the restaurant owned by a poultry farmer in Kamishihoro features an open kitchen where guests can sit at the counter and watch the chef cook the food. The restaurant, an old elementary school building, still has all of the original shoe boxes and bathrooms intact.

Lake Nukabira

During the winter the entire lake freezes, making it possible to “walk on the lake.” Due to the clarity of the lake, methane gases rising from the bottom of the lake are trapped in the frozen lake, creating ice bubbles. Another spectacular sight you don’t want to miss is the Taushubetsu Bridge, which appears to sink or appear out of the lake. Please direct your inquiries to the guide center.
