Abashiri, Kitami, & Shiretoko

Abashiri, Kitami, & Shiretoko

In the Abashiri, Kitami, and Shiretoko areas, known for their extreme cold, many spectacular natural sights are created by the harsh environment, such as Mount Iou with its white sulfur fumes and the drift ice that fills the Sea of Okhotsk.
You can also enjoy unique indoor facilities such as a museum where you can learn about the culture of the northern peoples, the Okhotsk Rty-hyo Museum displays real ice floes regularly, and a prison replicates the former Abashiri Prison.
