The 'Shiretoko Ryuhyo (Drift Ice) Festa' is a new winter event, taking over from the 'Shiretoko Fantasia' ('Aurora Fantasy'). At the green stage, visitors may enjoy an ice bar and local Shiretoko gourmet booths, or try their hands at 'slugline', a competitive tug-of-war sport. The blue stage offers incredible views of Oronko Rock and Sankaku Rock illuminated by colorful lights, as well as perhaps the world's first illuminated light show of ocean drift ice.

Lake AkanLake Lobster Lunch
Try Lake Akan's signature local dish, 'Zaribonara'

Signal crayfish, a specified alien species brought from outside of Japan, has proliferated in Lake Akan, wreaking havoc on the lake’s environment, including the habitat of the marimo. For this reason extermination efforts have been ongoing. Yet, in France crayfish are considered a luxury food on par with lobsters. Because the signal crayfish offers a premium taste similar to crab and its shell produces a thick and savory soup, people gave it the brand name Lake Lobster, as exterminating these signal crayfish would be a waste, thus transforming a nuisance into a local specialty item. In addition to the Lake Lobster Soup sold by the Lake Akan Fishing Cooperative, local restaurants now carry new menu items made from Lake Lobster, including the delicious Saribonara served by Onsen Kobo Akan at Lake Akan.
