Virtual Experience

Upopoy and the National Ainu Museum were established as a national center for Ainu cultural promotion supported by Japan. Beautiful designs, pleasant sounds, traditional techniques, and the traditions behind them - these are all part of the culture inherited by the Ainu people. In this virtual museum you can experience the profoundness of Ainu culture from the comfort of your home. There are sure to be many new discoveries for you here! I hope that you gain an interest in the history and culture of the Ainu people, and one day come in person to this, the northernmost national museum in Japan.
