Essentially, the Akan Nature Recreation Campground (阿寒自然休養村野営場) is in a perfect location for spending a leisurely day. There is the International Akan Crane Center over the road, as well as a few road-side stalls selling local produce. And the icing on the cake is the Circle House Red Valley onsen hotel just 5 minutes walk away.
So we woke up late, had a look at the crane center (worth the visit), and bought some local veges for a delicious lunch of curried pumpkin and potatoes.
Stock for the curry was made using local Hokkaido dried shitake mushrooms. Delicious.
Even the milk we used for our muesli this morning was local: locally produced milk from the Konsen region.
It feels like such a novelty and a luxury to consume locally produced foods…we are such city-kids *sigh*.
