  • The net walks the prison museum, originally really is the net to walk the prison, later was moved constructs, converted into a museum, which is very large, wooden cottage cells, bathrooms, single cells, teaching room, and so there are humanoid puppets in the restoration of the situation, where previously held "Japanese Escape king" White Bird by Rong, he is the most legendary prison escape in Japan. Traffic: NET walk before the station has a tour link bus, half an hour class, from the station to the ice-breaker pier, and then to the network to go to prison, are on the way, if you want to catch the boat, must be optimistic about the time Oh! Ticket: 1080 yen

  • Visibility was excellent, a friend from Tokyo go go in and went with them. As was widely 知retari history is not so you can study, but adults can enjoy. Contrary to children who may be a little bit disappointing.

  • Interesting place that shows prison life both present and past, not shying away from the harshness of life during the Meiji period either. Takes a couple of hours to go round. Very good accessibility. Fair bit for kids to see and do. A lot of language support on pretty much everything.
  • good place to visit in Abasiri. check the bus time table to plan your trip well
  • This is an interesting museum that you can easily spend half a day here just looking around all the exhibits. The main prison cell design is very interesting as it allows minimum no of guards to watch over all the prisoners.
  • Fun to spend time here. Dress warm for cold days because there is lots of outdoor walking.
  • Bring your student card for a discounted admission! The place is huge with lots of history. Beware of the mannequin they feel real.
