Located on the southwest part of the island of Hokkaido, Muroran is a major industrial center and your gateway to Hokkaido's natural beauty. This island's unhurried pace is a welcome contrast from the hustle and bustle of Honshu and Kyushu. Relatively uncrowded and unspoiled, Hokkaido offers dramatic landscapes ranging from dense forests and hot springs to active volcanoes and calm lakes nestled in calderas.
This village's 60 structures were painstakingly reproduced from traditional models that reflect typical 19th-century life in a replicated small town, fishing village, farming village, and mountain hamlet.
In Hokkaido's Valley of Hell, walking paths explore the 1,476-foot crater, surrounding fumaroles and mineral springs.
Designed by American architects in the 1870s, this capital of Hokkaido was the host city for the 1970 Winter Olympics.
