The Minami Alps Ashiyasu Mountain Museum is involved in the excavation, research and preservation of mountain-related cultural artifacts. It aims to disseminate information regarding nature protection and mountain climbing safety practices, and act as an intermediary for a wide range of exchange activities with mountainous areas.
It is located in a Satoyama (community-based forest area) that has developed culture, industry and technology deriving from a lifestyle in high-elevation mountain areas (3000 m), which are home to species that have survived the ice age such as the Callianthemum hondoense and rock ptarmigan. The Ashiyasu area is rich in natural and cultural attractions and the Sangakukan Museum aims to cultivate awareness of these among visitors.
