Start your journey at Memanbetsu Airport and visit Shiretoko, a World Natural Heritage Site and Sea of Okhotsk’s ice fields. In addition to regular flights to New Chitose, Haneda and Chubu airports, thrice weekly flights and summer-only seasonal flights to Itami and Kansai Airport are also available.
At the sole restaurant at this airport, Cafe Restaurant PILICA, all the tastes of Eastern Hokkaido are available for you. Onions are a specialty product of Kitami and is featured in Kitami Onion Ramen (miso, salt, or soy sauce base). The refreshing taste of salt base ramen is especially delicious and is recommended with some freshly squeezed lemon. Another decadent dish is the pork rice bowl featuring Tokachi pork expertly grilled over charcoal and finished with a rich sauce that pairs well with rice. Be sure to try the escalope, a Western-style dish with a cutlet on buttered rice with a demiglace sauce.
“Red Silo” cheesecake is made from Hokkaido milk, wheat, condensed milk, and eggs. Enjoy the rich taste of melted milk and cheese with a firm texture which can be purchased at the store JALUX BLUE SKY. Also available at the same store is an assortment of three kinds of “hogaja”, a rice cracker popular for its rich flavor and tasty crunchiness. Hogaja is also made with potato starch from Koshimizu Town, overflowing with natural beauty and abundancy of local foods from the sea and mountains.
“Seven Eleven Memanbetsu Airport Store” is the first Seven Eleven located in a Hokkaido Airport. You can purchase many items here, such as boxed lunches and travel goods.
The charm of Hokkaido lies in its magnificent landscape and nature. After arriving at the airport, make full use of the various trains and busses or a rental car to get the most out of your trip.
