Sandwiched between Mt. Tento and Lake Abashiri, Abashiri Prison Museum, often referred to in the past as “the prison in the farthest land”, is an outdoor museum made up of a number of buildings conserved from the original Abashiri Prison including the oldest wooden prison structure in the world. Replicas of inmates in the different prison buildings provide a fascinating, albeit dark, insight into what life in an isolated Hokkaido prison over 100 years ago was really like.
