Recommended points from the person in charge

At the Abashiri Prison Museum, we reproduce the menu of the meals currently eaten by the inmates in Abashiri Prison and offer them as "Experience Prison Food". You can taste the "secret recipe hidden in the wall", which is said to be "surprisingly delicious" by everyone who has eaten it, so please come to the prison cafeteria.
