Specialty Museum · Museum
Perched 207 m (679 ft) above sea level on top of Mt. Tenzoan, Okhotsk Ryu-hyo Museum boasts an unusual, year-round display of drift ice. The hands-on museum lets you touch and feel the ice, and you can make some yourself by spinning a wet towel quickly in a -15 C (5 F) room. Climb to the observatory, the museum's main highlight, for a winter panorama of ice drifting from the Siberian coast, or a summer view of Lake Abashiri. Using our custom trip planner, Abashiri attractions like Okhotsk Ryu-hyo Museum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
