Kitami Things to Do

    An American Christian missionary couple, George and Ida Geopp Pierson, first came to Japan in 1889 and moved to Kitami, then called Notsukeushi, in 1915. They were devoted to this place and were unstinting in their efforts to raise the level of spiritual culture in the Kitami area. The house, which has been designated a Hokkaido Historic Place, is now a memorial museum with displays showing their missionary activities.

    Open daily, except Mondays and the day after national holidays, 9:30-16:30.
    Free of charge.
