Ainu Culture Public Seminar "Kiroroan"
"Spreading Ainu Culture from Hakodate City, Hokkaido"

Hakodate, the southern gateway to Hokkaido, is famous for its western-style buildings from the early Meiji era and as the home to one of the “three great night views” of Japan. However, it has until now been considered a location with little connection to the Ainu people. With the establishment of the Hakodate Branch of the Hokkaido Ainu Association in 2010, Mr. Kato has made efforts to spread Ainu culture from Hakodate in various ways.
