    Mint cultivation throughout the Kitami region began around 1897. At its peak around 1935, Kitami's mint industry accounted for a staggering 70% of the world market. Mint was originally selected as a major crop for this region due to its resistance to cold, relative ease of cultivation, and high market value. The Hokuren Kitami Mint Factory has greatly contributed to the mint industry. This museum itself was originally a research facility for Hokuren Kitami Mint Factory, which was later donated to Kitami City and renovated into its current state. Within, visitors can learn all about the world of mint.
