Okhotsk Ryu-hyo Museum, Abashiri
(3/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • It is a Museum of the sea ice on Tento. Honestly didn't expect much, but can feel world of minus 15 ° C in the sea ice simulation room (cold ringtone lend), touching the ice, and then swinging the wet towel and freezing experiments on TV look like enjoyed even as adults. It was also the clione. I think once they go to the stories even better.

  • Will clione as well as to look at from Abashiri prison by car 5 minutes, located near the Summit of Tento, exhibits of real ice. Admission was higher in small facilities and (700 yen for adults). The roof of the facility is on the observation deck, weather permitting from the Abashiri city, far to the Shiretoko mountain range looks like.

  • In Abashiri bus that can travel along with the prison. Bus, closing at off tour of the hotel, overlooking the sea from the roof. After the closing time in the bus stop, waiting 20 minutes to be. Either you want to bus the bus is suitable.
