10 Things to Do in Haboro

Haboro (羽幌町) is a town in the Rumoi subprefecture of Hokkaido. The town's name is derived from the Ainu language, but its origin is uncertain. The name Haboro may have originated from the Ainu word hapuru, meaning "a smooth sound", or haporopetsu, meaning "the basin of a huge river".

For those planning to visit the town of Haboro to check what it has to offer, here are the 10 Things to Do in Haboro:


Haboro Manhole Cover

1. Take a picture of Haboro’s unique manhole cover. So far, I have seen 1 unique manhole design. There are numerous colored manholes on the streets along Route 747. However, most of them are damaged due to exposure so good luck finding the “most beautiful” one.


Haboro Roadside Station 

2. Visit Haboro Roadside Station (道の駅 ほっと♡はぼろ). It is on the ground floor of the Haboro Onsen Sunset Plaza. You can buy souvenirs and also get the Haboro Roadside Station stamp for your stamp collection. You can also eat at the Futashima Monogatari restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel. Try any dish with sweet shrimp as the main ingredient.

5. Attend the Haboro Fireworks Festival held at the Haboro Port / Haboro Sunset Beach every last week of July.
