Explore Arikawa's whaling history

  • 1374views

A museum and historical archive displaying pieces of Arikawa's whaling history.
There is a skeleton model of a mink whale as well as other life-size models. Panels and videos explain the area's whaling history from the Edo period up to the early modern period. The second level also contains a special exhibition that changes regularly, usually commemorating artists or major figures from the islands.

As there is no movie theater on the island, the theater here will sometimes play currently showing movies for the town locals.
