    And to have been the so-called location which I went. That has become a museum railway is the main Museum. Museum of science or laboratory on the second floor. Staff not interested so much in the train I! not just look at the SL working outdoors in wooded, old train in the 座retari in the driver's seat and can be experienced. You can learn while indoors, things of the Hokkaido Railway history, such as seeing model. I think tickets is a form of old tickets, become a Memorial. There was train's restaurant outside of the Museum. I went during the sightseeing you can enjoy (o ^ ^ o)

    Not much to see in here. However, there's a small coffee bar with some excellent beer and coffee. Some antiquities for sale at reasonable prices. Found a cool old ship's flag for 1500 yen.
