"Sapporo Ainu Cultural Promotion Center ""Sapporo Pirka Kotan""" (札幌市アイヌ文化交流センター(サッポロピリカコタン))

4.0

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

A center dedicated to indigenous Ainu culture. The concrete exterior walls of the facility are decorated with Ainu patterns. The facility was built so that local residents could learn about Ainu culture and history as well as to pass on and deepen understanding of Ainu culture. Some 300 pieces of traditional Ainu clothing, ritual tools, and items used in daily life are displayed inside the museum. There's also an information corner where you can peruse videos and books. Outside, there are recreations of a traditional Ainu home, grain cellar, and pen used to keep bear cubs.

          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.
