Top 3 recommended leisure activities in Eastern Hokkaido
1. Drift ice walk
Lie down on the ice and feel like a seal!
On the coast in Abashiri cityDrift ice walk(2 people or more, 1 person 8,000 yen) can experience by empty-handed.
While wearing clothes in the parking lot, wear rental dry suits, hats and gloves, and go to the sea of drift ice!
Walking on drift ice, thin drift ice breaks into the sea, floats in the sea, or tries to swim desperately.
Because the dry suit floats, it becomes an outdoor bath of drift ice, rising on ice with belly laugh like a seal.
I put a warmer on my stomach and back, but when I wear a dry suit it's not surprisingly cold.
