Explore the Tokachi region’s long agricultural, industrial, and cultural history at the Obihiro Centennial City Museum. Located about 10 minutes by car or 30 minutes on-foot from Obihiro Station, this museum has permanent exhibitions highlighting the region’s ancient past and modern present. Why not start in Ice Age-era Tokachi, and cast your eyes on the mammoths who called it home? Next, learn about the development of agriculture and industry after checking out prehistoric fossils and Jomon-era pottery. Before you leave, be sure to stop by the Riuka Folk Culture Information Center to study the life and culture of the indigenous Ainu people.
