Robatayaki refers to a method of cooking fresh seafood over charcoal similar to barbequing. Kushiro is believed to be the origin of this form of cooking. In Kushiro, there are a number of establishments that offer robatayaki, including wharf side robata where patrons can cook their own ingredients and traditional robata restaurants where you can enjoy fresh and juicy seafood grilled to perfection, while sitting around a sunken hearth. The robatayaki style is perfect for enjoying the extravagant flavors of special local ingredients, such as delicious fish straight from the harbor which is known for one of the largest catches in Japan, oysters and other shellfish from local waters, as well as local crab and prawns.
