Continuation of my trip review to Hokkaido.. This is a picture of little town called Monbetsu
, with a rising sun from Okhotsk Ocean. It's unbelievable that such tiny town can have their own airport..anyway, I call this town プレハブタウン, I really wonder how people survive through severe winter with such prefabricated houses, cold cold cold! :0
, 3 hour drive from Monbetsu, is famous for huge, historical prison which I did not go, but passed by to go eat Abashiri Crabs!! Yup, it was the best crabs I've ever eaten in my life. So fresh and tasty even w/o a source!
Then in Lausu
, the southern Shiretoko Peninsula, was gloomy and very windy that i could not even walk straight. (see, no one's out there) We had a friend there and he showed us around the Deep Ocean Water facilities in which Lausu city benefits alot from.
It was interesting to learn how the deep ocean water affects the marine producs (sea urchin and kelps) as well as for human body. And the whole city was excited for their new project of constructing Ocean Station like building that is already in operation now. Interesting:)
