Akankohan Eco-Museum Center introduces you to the lush nature in the Akan National Park Akan area. The Akan Marimo (round green algae) has been designated as a Special Natural Monument. The resting room has a big fireplace and is good for a rest after walking around the lake. You can hire the snowshoes and cross country skis. You can enjoy a walk on the Bokke nature trail which is behind the museum.

Reviewed:2017/08/21 Lovely education center--hands on
We went here with our family and it was a nice stop for about an hour. There are tons of hands on learning type events and my kids enjoyed the glassed in room with telescopes. It's certainly a nice...
Reviewed:2017/02/18 Not a lot to see
There is not a lot to see here apart from some fish in aquariums and a few of the legendary Marimo algae balls. The main function when we visited appeared to be equipment hire of skis and snowshoes.
Reviewed:2016/11/17 Marimo
We came by to this museum to see the history of Akankoso and have more information on the Marimo which is a unique algae found only in Lake Akanko. It is free entrance.

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.
