Kushiro is well-known for its cool weather and frequent fog occurrence during summer. The average temperature is around 20 Celsius degree, so it's good idea to bring a shawl or light jacket. In wintertime, the road becomes very icy and slippery, so please be careful walking on ice and bring appropriate snow boots.
