The town of Shimukappu is a small town found in central Hokkaido. It is a quaint town surrounded by low mountains and farmlands. It is on one of the main expressways that run through Hokkaido making the town a convenient place to stop in for a rest or supplies. In the centre of the town travelers can find the Shimukappu Shopping Mall as well as the culture centre. They are both located right next to each other. The shopping mall is full of small shops, information on the area, and a couple of restaurants.
The shops at the shopping mall sell local souvenirs including arts and crafts such as wood carvings and local produce. Why, walking around, why not purchase some of the local wines, fresh vegetables from the outlying farms, or take back some canned or bottled foods to eat at home! If you are stopping in for a quick bite, there is a nice little hamburg & curry rice restaurant to check out. They also have a bakery, plus an ice cream shop for those hot sunny days! And last but not least, there is a convenience store to stock up on supplies for a road trip. Enjoy!
