The Sushi of Kushiro
Sushi is another must-try item because Kushiro is famous for its marine products. The freshly caught marine products made into sushi and eaten even at conveyor belt sushi restaurants in the city are considered to be of the finest quality. Must-try types of sushi include Kushiro’s famous tokishirazu salmon, mackerel, pacific saury, and shishamo smelt. Eating raw fish that lose their freshness quickly, such as pacific saury and shishamo smelt, is a treat only found locally.
