What people are saying:

This Abashiri Prison Museum is located at the foot of Mount Tiandu, a suburb of Abashiri, Hokkaido, Japan. It is an open museum converted from a real prison with a history of more than 100 years. Tickets are required to enter the museum. It belongs to the Abashiri Tour Bus Line The first attraction. In the past, some labor and living facilities in Abashiri Prison were scattered all over the hillside. Most of them have been damaged over time, but what we see now is rebuilt intact. There is a modern prison history hall in the museum, which systematically introduces the history of Abashiri prison and the situation of supervision facilities. The most important cultural relic in the Abashiri Prison Museum is a well-preserved prison. Unlike other cells that are neatly arranged, this cell has a spoke-like structure.
