Northern Pavilion Bokyono Ie, Nemuro

(130 reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
Birdwatchers can spot many coastal species at Northern Pavilion Bokyono Ie, a commemorative lighthouse and museum situated on the cape overlooking the country's lost Northern Territories, which Japan still claims sovereignity over. Visitors can pop into the museum, which details the area's history and displays taxidermy examples of the local wildlife, including sea birds and seals. Out on the coast you can see many of these animals in the flesh, so be sure to bring along your binoculars, and consider packing a picnic lunch to enjoy on the shore. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Nemuro holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Northern Pavilion Bokyono Ie and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
