This facility is Japan’s first and northernmost national museum dedicated to the history and culture of the indigenous Ainu people. It was established to transmit the history and culture of Ainu to many people and to pass their culture to future generations in order to create a society where the pride of the Ainu is respected. The exhibitions introduce the Ainu people from their own perspective.
