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.

  • Drift ice sightseeing boats were canceled in a snowstorm so hastily tour. Mechanisms can drift and learned things. You recommend the real ice. I sampled the real thing some years ago. Minus 15 ° C a separate and direct touch! Quite cold, so winter clothes also lend. Is also quite interesting because freezes lending me even a wet towel, 振り回せば towel ☆
