The Moyoro Shell Mound Museum was established to solve the mysteries concerning the northern ethnic group the Okhotsk people, who appeared and disappeared approximately 1,300 years ago. What has been discovered about Okhotsk culture over the 100 years since the discovery of the Moyoro shell mound is exhibited and separated in categories (dwellings, tombs and shell mounds), and you can experience the lifestyle of the Moyoro people here. One highlight is the Cemetery Area Exhibition Room, where a tomb which was actually excavated is preserved and exhibited in its original state.
