From the observation platform of Okhotsk Ryu-hyo Museum standing on Mt. Tento, a superb view that overlooks the Sea of Okhotsk can be enjoyed. A 360-degree panorama that spreads in front is spectacular and the scenery gorgeously transforms itself with the season – cherry blossoms in spring, deep greens in summer, autumn hues in the fall and snow-covered scenery in winter.
Okhotsk Ryu-hyo Museum is a tourist facility with the theme of drift ice and living creatures of the Sea of Okhotsk and exhibits real drift ice. There are other tourist facilities nearby including Hokkaido Museum of Northern Peoples and Abashiri Prison Museum.
