Abashiri Prison MuseumRead Later
Japan’s famously difficult to break out of prison, Abashiri.
Once an operational prison, the old Abashiri Prison’s buildings have been carefully maintained and now are open to the public as a museum. The oldest of the prison’s buildings was built over 120 years ago!
While small children may be a bit frightened by them, the wax sculptures that depict the prisoners’ lives in the facility offer a valuable and enjoyable learning experience for adults.
