Furusatokan JRY (Tonden Local History Museum)
Pronounced "Jerry," the acronym "JRY" stands 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 settled down the area that later becomes Yubetsu town. The exhibits include tools and household goods 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.
