Submerge yourself into the day-to-day life of a prisoner, from the solitary confinement and law court, to the miso and soy agricultural areas for which the prison became known. Rest your feet at the museum restaurant, where you can sit down to a meal called the "Prisoner's Lunch."

The prison museum is definitely worth a visit if you come to Abashiri. Through this museum, I understand more about the early development and history of Hokkaido and how those notorious felons who ever served their sentence here contributed to the early settlement and development of Hokkaido. They are sinners on one hand but heroes on the other hand.
Amazing museum - great displays (not all are in English but we felt absolutely satisfied with the amount of information), beautiful location and design, very useful orientation map... they also show two short explanatory films which are really insightful. Don’t miss out on this!
