Monument of Matsuura Takeshiro

Perhaps the name of Takeshiro Matsuura is not well known. In fact, he was the Edo period explorer credited with conceiving the framework for Hokkaido's settlement, and even the father of the name "Hokkaido" itself. His monument stands on the shore of Lake Akan, where it is said that he realized the primal, spiritual appeal of Lake Akan, bringing it to the attention of the world.
