Shiretoko and Raus are part of a region of Hokkaido that is well known for its bountiful seafood and natural sightseeing spots. “Kajika”, which is within walking distance from the Rausu fishing port, is a popular restaurant where you can enjoy carefully selected local seafood. Kajika specializes in dishes featuring sushi and sashimi including local seafood that you absolutely must try when you’re in Raus like the top-grade fatty “menme” (also known as “kinki”, or “thornhead”) white-fish, and the illusory “budo-ebi” (literally translated as “grape-shrimp”) which can only be caught during a limited time of the year. Kajika has even been included in the Michelin Guide’s Bib Gourmand. For those looking to taste the delicious flavors of the sea in Raus, this is the optimal spot. Kajika is also easy to access being located downtown and is in a convenient spot for sightseeing.
