Historic Sites Museums Nature
A coastal town with a smattering of things to do, Abashiri has an interesting history and arresting natural scenery. During the Meiji Period, the city became the site of the country's first maximum-security prison, where political prisoners and other convicts were forced to do hard labor, or sit in freezing cells during the harsh winter months. Today, the prison functions as a museum, and tops many tours of Abashiri. In cold weather, icebreakers run trips along the ice floes offshore. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Abashiri and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

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.
