Sunday, October 16, 2016 Shiraoi, Hokkaido
After our dream-come-true ramen at Lake Shikotsu, we boarded our bus once again and headed to the town of Shiraoi to visit the Shiraoi Ainu Museum called Porotokotan.
Porotokotan is an outdoor reproduction of a small Ainu Village where exhibits and artifacts are displayed relating to the history, culture and lifestyle of the Ainu. Ummmm . . . sorry but I didn't take any photos of exhibits or artifacts relating to the history, culture and lifestyle of the Ainu. It was dark in the huts, and I kinda forgot that my new camera comes with an attached flash. Or maybe no flash photography was allowed. Yup, I think that's it . . . no flash photography was allowed. Maybe. Ahem . . .
