What people are saying:

This Hokkaido Museum of Northern Peoples is located at the foot of Mount Tiandu on the outskirts of Abashiri, Hokkaido, Japan. It is the last stop on the Abashiri tourist bus line and is also a paid museum. There is only 800 meters walking distance between the Northern Peoples Museum and Okhotsk Drift Ice Museum. It takes ten minutes to go down from Drift Ice Hall. It only takes 2 minutes by tourist bus. The permanent exhibition hall system of the Northern Peoples Museum displays the past life, production status and civilization development of the Ainu, the indigenous people of Hokkaido, and is of high value for a comprehensive understanding of the Ainu culture.

    Interesting about the Ainu People

    The visit was worth the trip, and the free audio helped us understand the exhibits; however we paid the extra entrance fee to visit the enclosed section and found it to be more about the Sami people o...

    Informative

    An excellent little museum with a free audio guide. Covers all of the Northern people and has clearly defined sections on aspects of life with some very good film footage.
