Ryuhyo Glass Museum流氷硝子館


The Ryuhyo Glass Museum is located a one-minute walk away from the rest area on Route 39 in Abashiri City. At the museum they have glass workshops, a shop and a cafe. The glass raw material used is mainly recycled glass of waste fluorescent lamps called Eco Pirika. Eco stands for ecology while Pirika means ‘true’ and ‘beautiful’ in the Ainu language. The fluorescent light bulbs are not imported but collected and recycled from municipalities and companies across the country to make the raw material. You can have a go at blowing glass and making glass beads, making for some great memories of your travels.

          Hokkaido Main Areas


          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.
