A quick Hokkaido cultural trip

  • Sightseeing
  • Special Recommendations

The Hokkaido Museum is a place for learning about Hokkaido's history and culture and where you can go even during bad weather.

On the 1st floor, you can observe the history of Hokkaido from the prehuman era to the contemporary lifestyle. Please do not miss the fossil tusk of the mammoth, with which you can take a photo and even touch!

On the 2nd floor you can learn about Hokkaido's nature. Please find the stuffed salmon and hold it. It is a rare opportunity to learn the real weight of a salmon!

To go to the Hokkaido Museum, find the JR bus service from JR Shin-Sapporo Station. (210 JPY)

The entry fee is 600 JPY for adult, and more than 10 people can get a group discount for 500 JPY

Audio instruction in English and Chinese is available.
