Neighboring facilities include the city’s port, where cruise ships full of passengers from outside Japan dock, Kushiro Fisherman’s Wharf MOO (a commercial center featuring shops and restaurants), an indoor garden known as EGG (Ever Green Garden), and the Kushiro Tourism and International Relations Center. These facilities combine to make the area a major Kushiro tourist destination.
