  • Suggested to get there by driving. It took more than an hour walk from the nearest JR station. You are required to take a lesson by the owner before going in.  more »
  • Went with the navigation system is really in it? And anxiety seems to be excellent. Description of squirrel reception was unfriendly, but squirrels are cute and delight children. Comprises just during the holidays, but I think is not quite cramped.

  • Place in the depths of the Abashiri Lake quietly commune with certain Chipmunk. Into the area later described a fairly detailed notes from the woman's facial expression, one set with food, squirrel. Takes a long time to fine so far, but once inside little squirrel who had that come between, eat food from the hand. Is the temperature difference between the earlier women laugh too much cuteness. Location of healing anyway squirrels are cute, too, will want to be many, many times. To me she is playing under the big Lotus Leaf tender feelings.

  • Cute little chipmunks welcome you. Kids love the experience. Difficult to find parking space in summer.
  • A great experience! There are a lot of rules for interacting with the chipmunks, so if you're traveling with children, make sure they are prepared to move calmly, carefully, and quietly while in the enclosure. You are guaranteed to get a chipmunk in your hand, but it takes patience! The little gift shop was lovely as well. No English spoken, but the caretakers have done their best with signs and pictures.
  • Just a very enjoyable place to go, went on a sunny Saturday in August at 10:20 and it seemed to get crowded fast. I recommend going early. It's 400 yen for entry to the little enclosure. That includes a tiny bag of nuts, but you can pay a few more yen for a larger bag if you want to spend some more time surrounded by chipmunks.
  • These are the cutest creatures and an excellent place to visit. We were first in. Place opens at 10am so we got there at 9:40am. We had the place to ourselves because she lets people in one group at a time and gives the animal safety briefing before you enter. An absolute highlight of our trip!
  • Commune directly with the Chipmunks is famous. Oh, no amount will imply only a handful are fed in the first place, and instead to. Good morning, hungry squirrels.

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.
