Furusatokan JRY (Tonden Local History Museum)
Pronounced "Jerry", the letters "JRY" stand for "Joint", "Jewel", "Roots", "Record", and "Yubetsu", reflecting the history of the region's tonden-hei (farmer-soldiers) during Hokkaido's pioneering times. This museum is dedicated to the brave tonden-hei who set down the foundation that would later become Yubetsu town. The displays include tools and household articles from Hokkaido's pioneering era, as well as highly-detailed dioramas depicting the history of tonden-hei in Yubetsu. There is also a reproduction of a tonden-hei house, which has been selected as a Hokkaido cultural heritage.
