Ainu Kotan

Located in the hot-spring resort area of Akankohan near Kushiro, the small village of Ainu Kotan is home to Hokkaido’s indigenous people, the Ainu. The store-lined main street here is touristy but nonetheless ideal for one-stop shopping for Ainu handicrafts and other gifts such as knife cases, clothing and embroidered bags.
