Above is the community center where the citizens can spend their time comfortably reading books, chatting, exercising or other kinds of activities.
Hotel Rishiri run by the municipality of Rishiri is closed winter but the spa gives the citizens and the businessmen who visit the island "the time of healing"
I really enjoyed the dinner arranged by the inn "Shoubugawa Ryokan" that I stayed. It was so different from that served in the high season of the tourism but I was eager to know what the accommodations provide in winter. To run a small inn must be tough even on the island.
The owner of the inn must have high degrees of skill to entertain the guests with the limited material food in winter.
