    For bad weather, with limited activities, visited. But it was absolutely unexpected. The exhibition was hooked. At the reception, free audio guide rentals are available. If you take out I spent about 1 hour 30. You can learn the lives of peoples, as well as the Ainu.

    ¥800 gets you into both the permanent and special exhibitions. Audio guide was great and there are some interesting exhibits. Only disappointment was the lack of mammoth in the exhibit. We went there specifically for this and the best we got was a tusk.

    A museum for indigenous people in the north. Not just the Ainu people on Hokkaido but also others all over the world. Had some interesting displays on how they live before modernisation.

    Nice and interesting museum. I really appreciated the (free) English audio guide. Took us roughly 1h15 following the guide to go through the permanent exhibition.

Where to stay in Abashiri

The main places to stay in Abashiri sit along the banks of the Abashiri River as it makes its way through town. Here, a variety of hotels and guesthouses put you in close proximity to the train station and main sights. Follow the river inland to Lake Abashiri, and you'll see a bunch of other accommodations looking out over the river. Largely more exclusive than options in town, the choices here consist mainly of traditional ryokans with onsens.
