Abashiri Kyodo Museum
The Abashiri Historical Museum building itself is considered to have historical value. Built in 1936, the building was designed by Yoshiya Tanoue, who was a pupil of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Tanoue became involved in a number of western architectural buildings, a style that is suitable for Hokkaido's northern climate. The interior stained glass and spiral staircases are particularly impressive and provide a luxurious environment. The "Moyoro Shell Mound Branch Museum," provide exhibit and information about the ways of ancient peoples’ living in the area, based on its archaeological research.
