Guide to visiting the Shiretoko Museum Passing by the Shiretoko Museum conforms to the principle that we must enter the museum when we encounter it. Shiretoko is an Ainu language, meaning "the end of the earth". Like the name of the end of the earth, the Shiretoko coastline has cliffs that make it difficult to approach. Deep forests, mountains that run through the peninsula, and ice floes on the shore in winter, and other colorful nature preserve the natural habitat of wild animals. The museum displays specimens of various animals in Shiretoko, rich ecological knowledge, and some interactive projects. There are only three of us in the whole museum, and there is a sense of seizure in the private room. The most worth mentioning is that there is a screening in the museum. The hall, a 15-minute Chinese explanation, tells about the four seasons of Shiretoko, various animals and plants, and also mentions the protection measures for brown bears and other animals and plants.
