The indigenous people of Japan’s north will soon have a museum of their own. The National Ainu Museum and Park will be devoted to the culture that began centuries ago, in what are now Hokkaido and the Tohoku region. The facility will carry the name Upopoy, an Ainu word meaning singing in a large group. It’s set to open next April.
