The points of this model course
We recommend the course where you can learn about the history and culture of Okhotsk in just half a day for those who is not satisfied the trip just only sightseeing eating and playing! This is a longer course, so we recommend that you arrive at Memanbetsu Airport in the morning. You can try out prison food in the actual cafeteria used at Abashiri Prison. As well as historical and cultural experiences, you'll also stop by the popular scenic spots and a cafe that is beloved by locals.
