Type of travel: bus tour

Price: approximately 7,000 yen

 

This post-conference tour includes three spectacular activities: (1) a visit to the Ainu Ethnological Museum, Shiraoi, where a live performance of Ainu dances, a lecture by the museum’s curator (to be arranged), and the Ainu-style lunch will be provided. Junior local scholars knowledgeable about indigenous issues and fluent in English will join us; (2) a walk around Lake Shikotsu in the middle of the autumn-leave season; and (3) an observation of a huge school of salmon coming back for spawning. For participants leaving Hokkaido in the evening, we will make a stopover at the New Chitose Airport before returning to central Sapporo.
