Welcome to our museum! We hope you will take this opportunity to learn about Shari's history, and consider its future.
We have exhibited about 20 Shiretoko-Neputa floats that are used in the festival every July.
There are protection facilities for injured birds and animals, and you can also observe the field.
The Shiretoko Museum was opened to celebrate the 100th birthday of the town of Shari on December 28th, 1978.
We have collected and now exhibit a lot of information about the human history and rugged nature of the Shiretoko peninsula. This is a place where you can discover Shari's history, and consider its future.
It was opened on November 23th, 1993 to celebrate both the 20th anniversary of the sister town relationship with Taketomi town in Okinawa prefecture, and the 10th anniversary with Hirosaki city in Aomori prefecture. Here you will be introduced to the natural surroundings and cultures of both cities, and also see the “Shiretoko-Neputa”, which are traditional Japanese floats.
This is a unique and special place, where you can rediscover Shiretoko!
We have many projects to encourage more use of the museum by the public.
