Okhotsk Ryu-hyo Museum, Abashiri
(3/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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. Okhotsk Ryu-hyo Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Abashiri Edition.

  • -15 ° C room, you can touch the ice. It is just. Because of bad weather I good weather Observatory is not especially impressed. Was not screened during the waiting room from 15 minutes had screenings at the interval only when travelling theatre screenings also had when I went, so fewer people because we want to see. Ask staff running time out room theater because it does not begin with the switch to not spend the voice I was waiting for the 腹立chimashita.
