Hokkaido: Yakumo Bear Woodcarving Museum

A visit to Hokkaido and this spectacular museum is a must for anyone passionate about Japanese wood carving. Japan’s only such museum, with a collection of over 300 bear woodcarvings created in Yakumo and other regions, including Hokkaido’s first bear woodcarving.

We love the emotive expressions and mischievous poses of the wooden bears.
