Dattan soba (Dattan Soba) is also called "bitter soba noodles" and contains about 100 times more "rutin", which is a type of polyphenol and the source of bitterness, about 100 times more than normal soba noodles, but now it is easy to eat because we have planted a variety called "Manten Kirari" that softens the bitterness and retains the nutrients. Rutin has a powerful antioxidant effect, so it can be expected to prevent weekly illness and improve blood sugar and blood pressure, making it a soba noodle that has been attracting attention due to the health boom in recent years. There is also an observation deck modeled after an airship 24 meters above the ground, and it is also a spot where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Obu.

You can enjoy the scenery of the Sea of Okhotsk in summer and the panoramic view of over 180 degrees in front of you during the drift ice season in winter. There is "Omu Town Cape Hinode Campsite" about 7 minutes on foot from Cape Hinode. It consists of a free site and bungalows, and is bustling during the summer camp every year. You can spend a comfortable time surrounded by nature. There is also Hotel Cape Hinode around this campsite where you can take a day trip, so please use it when sightseeing Omu Town. Here, we will deliver information on Omu Town's specialties and recommended gourmet food! The specialty of Hokkaido Omu Town is delicious seafood nurtured by rich nature. Among seafood, fresh scallops, hairy crabs, and salmon are gaining popularity. Since you can fully enjoy the bounty of the sea, processed products are also recommended as souvenirs! Hokkaido Omu Town's hometown tax payment offers thank-you goods that take advantage of these rich nature and local specialties such as delicious marine products.

Lake Takkobu, Kushiro River mainstream, railway tracks (depending on the time, you can see the Kushiro Main Line and Norocco) It is a wonderful view. There is a wooden bench so you can (^^) enjoy the scenery at your leisure. Sneakers are OK! There are a lot of mosquitoes in summer, so it would 🙂 be nice to have an insect repellent spray. There are no vending machines when you enter the wooden path, so be 😉 sure to bring water with you. *************************** Location: 65-2 Tatsukobu, Kushiro DistrictKushiro Town, Takkobu Auto Campsite Time required: 2.3 km one way / about 30 minutes 21 km by car from Kushiro Station, about 30 minutes *************************** #Kushiro City #Kushiro Sightseeing #Kushiro Marsh #Yumegaoka Observatory
