Akkeshicho Maritime Affairs Memorial Museum
The coastal town of Akkeshi has developed as a fishery town for more than 200 years. The town was known for herring and salmon fishery since the Edo period (1603-1868), and today’s popular sea harvests include oysters, pacific saury, salmon, and trout. This hall was built to commemorate the 190th anniversary of the town’s founding. Displays include different fishing tools from long ago until now and informative panels about oyster cultivation and fishing boat engines. The second floor contains a planetarium, a popular venue for children's learning.
