Café opens in disused premises in Akanko Onsen hot-spring resort
‘Soranomori Café’ has opened in the Akanko Onsen hot-spring resort in the city of Kushiro in eastern Hokkaido. Enjoji Atsushi, who runs the Yamaguchi hot-spring guesthouse, has taken over the café in the premises that have been disused for approximately 4 years. Enjoji offers side dishes and cakes, and hopes the café will be a place where “both locals and tourists can spend their time freely to their heart’s content.”
The café opened on Aril 11. As well as a daily choice of around 10 different side dishes, such as croquettes, fried chicken and hamburger steaks made my Atsushi and his mother, Enjoji Yasuko – who is also the landlady of the Yamaguchi hot-spring guesthouse – the café also serves coffee, and cake supplied by a western-style confectionery shop in Kushiro. Selected side dishes can also be packed in a container (50 yen) to take out.
The Enjoji family moved from the city of Obihiro approximately eight-and-a-half years ago and took over the guesthouse – which did not have a successor – keeping its original name. They also continued to use the name of the café that was originally in the premises. “It was good to be able to bring some light to the disused premises at the entrance of the Ainu Kotan. We serve home cooking so, hopefully, people will feel free to pop in,” says Atsushi.
