Kaneto Kawamura, an Ainu chief, became a master surveyor and helped to lay the tracks for several of Hokkaidō's railways. In 1916, after eye problems forced him to retire, he used his accumulated wealth to create the first Ainu museum. Take bus 24 from stop 14 in front of JR Asahikawa Station to the Ainu Kinenkan-mae stop (¥170, 15 minutes).
