    Hokkaido Chitoseshi Bibi New Chitose Airport Domestic Terminal Building 3F
    The SKY MUSEUM is situated on the Third Floor of the Domestic Terminal Building at New Chitose Airport. There is a Work Experience Corner where visitors can try on a pilot’s or flight attendant’s uniform, flight simulators, etc., and also a Kids’ Corner for children. The SKY MUSEUM also has an observation deck where visitors can get a close-up view of planes landing and taking off, which is well worth a look. A wide range of unique airport-themed goods and local specialties are available for sale. The SKY MUSEUM is a place that both adults and children will enjoy!

    Really a continuation of the shops with a few displays that are 'museum-like'. This is nothing special but if you have time it is an OK stroll.

  • Kiusu Earthwork Burial Circles
    Travel / Tourism
    Hokkaido Chitoseshi Chuou
    This mass burial site, located near the Chitose-higashi interchange on the Doto Expressway, dates back to the ancient Jomon period. This site is the largest such burial ground from this period in Japan. Comprised of eight burial mounds in total, the mounds are characterized by a donut-shaped earthen embankment surrounding a sunken pit. This style has only been seen in Hokkaido and teaches us about the social systems of the people who lived here regarding burial rites and ancestor worship. Actual artifacts from the site are displayed in the Chitose Archaeological Center to the west in Chitose City.

    北海道は、国内はもとより海外からも人気の観光地だが、ある日いきなり雄大な景色、美味しい食べ物、ダイナミックな道などが出来たわけではない。 失業、水害などで食っていけなくなった人達が新天地を求めて北海道に入植し、厳しい気象関係の中で築き上げたものであり、その際に現在からは考えられないような劣悪な労働環境で囚人も働かされその方達のおかげで今の北海道がある。 ぜひ、北海道に観光に行く人は1度ここや博物館...

    Hokkaido Ebetsu-shi Nishi-nopporo 114-5

    1人700円で500グラムの粘土が用意されており、茶碗やマグカップなどを作りました。初めに40分程講師の方からの説明がありましたが、とても分かりやすく丁寧でした。その後作り始めますが、すぐ横に講師の方もついて下さり、不明な点はその場で教えていただけたのでスムーズに作業が進みました。色を指定してその日は終了です。焼き上がりは約一ヶ月後です。完成が楽しみです。

    Hokkaido Kabato-gun Shintotsukawacho Chuo 32-9

    出雲大社は単なる神社ではなく、出雲大社教という宗教法人の施設なので、割と各地に分院や教会(神社のこと)があります。しかし、まさか新十津川町に分院があるとは思ってもいませんでした。新十津川町は、母村・十津川村から分村してできましたが、母村から多くの十津川郷士を輩出していることを考えるとここにある理由も納得できました。ちなみに、新十津川町は母村と同様に剣道が大変盛んなことで有名です。

Hokkaido Main Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
