Shiraoi Ainu Museum - Day Trip, Sapporo: 5 reviews and 5 photos
<BR>Head for <font face='papyrus', color='006699'><b>SHIRAOI</b></font> (about 30 mins train ride from Noboribetsu): A reconstructed <font face='papyrus', color='006699'><b>AINU VILLAGE</b></font> with the Ainu people demonstrating traditional art & crafts.
<BR>Long ago, there used to live the Ainu who were fishing & hunting people in all over Hokkaido & then Shiraoi was one of the largest Ainu villages.
<BR>This Ainu village was rebuilt in 1965 & the Ainu Museum in 1984 in order to work on preservation & research in the Ainu culture & to transmit the precious cultural property of the Ainu to the next generation.
<BR>See how the Ainu tribe live & learn their crafts & the climate they are subjected to.
