  • Small but nice museum about Ainu people. This museum has great collection about Ainu-made traditional clothes, equipment and information about their lifestyle and history. Some of the descriptions are also in English, but more could be translated too. Museum building is kind of old facility of some sort, not best suitable for a museum. There's few items on sale by the museum shop, next to where the tickets are sold. Museum has 2 floors.
  • An interesting museum about Ainu people. They have a booklet which has English introductions for almost all the contents inside and it’s placed outside the reception. Good to read through
