Last night we stayed in a nice little dorm like place, the 坂の上会館 (“The Meeting Place at the Top of the Hill”).. After I took care of some errands at a local coin laundry, we wandered downtown to grab some dinner and drinks.
The town has a bit of a European feel, with the broad river and riverside shops.
We wandered the streets a bit before coming upon the restaurant which Gary had found online, 居酒屋たぁ. This place was great…
Before we even sat down I spotted a monster skewer of pork on a neighboring table, and I had to order one right away. The portions in this place are simply out of scale. As the food piled up I decided to take a panorama shot as a small jibe at Gary, who has a terrible panorama habit. Seriously. The guy has been taking about 30 panoramas a day…
We walked back to the dorm in a nice fog, which really drove home the European feel. I look forward to coming back to Kushiro again someday.

Good to see you writing a blog again, Steve! You look happy.
Kushiro is a wonderful place, but it’s miserably cold in the winter… in a very damp way. Have you been to the Kushiro Marshes yet? They’re unforgettable.
I’ll see if we can catch the marshes on the way out of town. Thanks for the tip!
