Previously known as the "Kushiro City Marine Information Room", this facility makes it fun to learn about Kushiro, one of Japan's foremost fishing towns. Displays include historical materials, DVDs, fishing tackle, dioramas, and more. Entrance is free of charge, and the first floor contains a food court providing a chance to taste the freshest seafood. The fifth floor contains an oft-overlooked observation room with a 360-degree overlook of Kushiro.
