People of Ainu have been living in northern Japan long before the Japanese people ruled Hokkaido. The National Ainu Museum and Park, UPOPOI opened in July 2020, which led the history and culture of the Ainu to gain attention once again. Out of the 47 prefectures in Japan, Hokkaido is one of the prefecture most closely related to Ainu. Many of Hokkaido’s geographical names are originated from Ainu words.
In this tour, we will first learn and experience the history, culture and tradition of the Ainu at UPOPOI. After lunch, we will hike Kamui Nupuri, the Mountain of God with a professional hiking guide and feel the nature of the mountain, just like how the Ainu did.
