Abashiri

3.3
A coastal town with a smattering of things to do, Abashiri has an interesting history and arresting natural scenery. During the Meiji Period, the city became the site of the country's first maximum-security prison, where political prisoners and other convicts were forced to do hard labor, or sit in freezing cells during the harsh winter months. Today, the prison functions as a museum, and tops many tours of Abashiri. In cold weather, icebreakers run trips along the ice floes offshore. Abashiri is in Hokkaido.
