The resort town of Akanko Onsen, on the south shores of Lake Akan, is inhabited by one of the largest remaining Ainu communities in Hokkaido. In the Ainu community area (Ainu-kotan), you can enjoy the indigenous dance and music that uses an instrument called "mukkuri", similar to a jaw-harp.

In the resort, there are hot spring ryokan, a public bath house, and a number of foot and hand baths. The hand baths seen in Hokkaido are said to have originated from this area. The dishes with wakasagi (smelt), kokanee salmon and lake lobsters from Lake Akan are real treats.

小さな温泉街ですが温泉は気持ち良かった。街なかではかわいい雪だるまを幾つか見ました。それとアイヌコタンの巨大なフクロウが印象的でした。すぐ近くのアイヌシアターでは短時間ですが民族舞踏に参加することができます。

アイヌコタンは夜遅くも楽しめる。昼間は、やはり湖を楽しもう‼️

ちょっと寂しい雰囲気。紅葉はとても綺麗。フェリーは一度は乗ってみてもいいと思います。
