The exhibitions to be displayed at the Hokkaido Information Center were revealed by the Hokkaido Government on June 10. The center aims to introduce Hokkaido's history and nature to press members visiting Hokkaido to report on the Summit in July, and will also provide support for coverage of Hokkaido.

The 460-square-meter center, located at Rusutsu Resort in Shiribeshi Subprefecture's Rusutsu Village (the venue of the International Media Center), is divided into eight zones named Entrance, Relationships with G8, Ainu Culture, Sea, Land, Woods, Winter and Communication. Hokkaido's natural environment, the characteristics of the region's industries and bio-related pioneering technology will be introduced using images and panels, and actual ice floes and wood products will also be displayed.

Representing Ainu culture, traditional houses called "chise" will be rebuilt, and ritual artifacts and livingware will also be shown. The historical events of the Northern Territories will be explained in the Relationships with G8 countries, and docents will be on hand to explain the issues of Ainu rights and the details of territorial problems. A sampling section will also be prepared featuring Hokkaido foods, and journalists will be able to find information on local transport and the best spots to collect news materials.

The exhibition will be held between July 5 and 10 to match the active period of the IMC, but is not open to the public. The facility will be scrapped after this time, and some exhibits will be donated to existing facilities in Hokkaido.
