Shiraoi Ainu Village is also called Porotokotan, which means a large lakeside village. “Ainu” means “human” and Ainu people are the aborigines of Northern Japan.
There is a museum building with historical exhibits, and then some Ainu style huts. They have some performances to demonstrate crafts, culture such as singing and dancing, and basic ways of Ainu life.
I don't have any interest in understanding the history and thus, I just took some photos around (Pardon me, I really hate history stuffs!).
I purposely adjusted the colour of my photos to make you feel this is a historical spot.

I'm so helpless now because I got a progress test tomorrow. Need to force myself to party with all the IASs & IFRSs tonight. FML
