Shellfish Museum of Rankoshi is Open

Among the seven towns and villages around Mt. Yotei under the jurisdiction of the Shiribeshi branch office, only Rankoshi-cho has a beautiful coastline (about 4 Km).

The town aims to promote the region by making the most out of the sea. "Shellfish Museum of Rankoshi" was built as one of the "Seaside Park Minato Concept" that promotes a new relationship with the sea and marine ecosystem.

Opened in 1991, this is a shellfish museum that displays fossil shells such as marine and land snails living worldwide and ammonites in Hokkaido.

The museum is open everyday in July and August. Please check HERE for more details and further schedules of the museum.

Hokkaido Foreign Resident Support Center Free Consultations

While the globalization does not seem to cease, the number of foreign residents here in Hokkaido has been increasing each year and their population has been widely spread throughout the area.

Moreover, last April after the Enforcement of the Revised Immigration Control Act was released, we are expecting even more foreign residents.

With this in sight, in order to realize a multicultural society here in Hokkaido, it is imperative that we understand each our's cultures and our different life styles.

That being all said, Hokkaido Foreign Resident Support Center will hold 2 free consultations to welcome foreign residents with an open arm while providing them with the assistance they need in their everyday life in Japan.

Niseko Chiropractic Has Come to Kutchan

Niseko Chiropractic Kutchan

Niseko Chiropractic is proud to announce that from next week it will now possible to book consultations at the Powder Yoga studio (map HERE) when they are not running scheduled classes. 

This is great little studio just 4 doors up from the sprout cafe. 

Over the short term they will be offering appointments all day Tuesdays ( apart from class times ) and also most evenings from 8pm. 

Other times will be possible by appointment and more details on this to come in July as the summer approaches. 

They are currently working on how to allow the booking system to chose between a mobile service or a visit in Kutchan studio, but as temporary workaround they have made a separate appointment type. ( Kutchan studio vs mobile service). 

If you do book a Kutchan studio session, please double check you are not booking in a registered Powder Yoga class time.

Also in conjunction with Powder Yoga, they are launching their first introduction to relaxation massage workshop (location same as above). 

This short course will give you the practical info you need to give a high-quality massage to friend or partner. 

The powder yoga massage 6-hour workshop will run on Saturday and Sunday the 18th and 19th of July from 6pm-9pm.

The course will run over 2 evenings with 3 hours per session. No previous massage or anatomy knowledge is needed but you will get more out of the experience is you have had some previous related training. The focus will be on concepts and applying specific techniques rather than running through a set routine.

You will have the chance to work on various body types and there will be plenty of time to allow for practice and refinement of techniques in the sessions. 

Brent has a 12-year background in teaching remedial massage in Australia as well as anatomy at a university level. 

Massage tables will be provided but please bring your own sheets and pillows.

There will also be an opportunity to purchase some tables at a discounted price at the end of the workshop.

This workshop is strictly limited to the first 10 participants. 

If you have any specific questions about the workshop content please contact Brent directly on [email protected].

They currently have 6 spaces remaining and you can book on HERE (please note that due to system limitations it only shows the course running on the Saturday evening but rest assured it will be running from Saturday and Sunday from 6pm-9pm).

If you do wish to book an appointment at any stage you can do so HERE.

*Please kindly remember that the above 2 are held exactly at the same space as Powder Yoga classes. In order to avoid booking in at the same time as one of their classes, please check Powder Yoga' s schedules HERE.
