SIKAOI / Shikaoi


Shikaoi (Shikaoi Town) is a road station on route 274. This town has recently focused on growing sturgeon for production of expensive caviar, or sturgeon roe. To spread word of this sturgeon project, the road station houses a water tank exhibiting sturgeon. In the shop, local specialty food and goods are there; including buckwheat noodles, snacks using burdock, raw and cooked beans, cooked landlocked salmon, and mountain trout with sweet sauce. Landlocked salmon are known as "yamame" and mountain trout as "iwana" in Japanese. They live in Lake Shikaribetsu. In addition, there are wooden toys and pottery.
