Moseushi (妹背牛町) is a town in the Sorachi Subprefecture of Hokkaido, Japan. The town's name is derived from the Ainu language "Moseushi" and "Mose Ushii" which means "a place where nettles thrive" or "a place where thatch is customarily cut". However, it is believed to have been a modified translation. The town's name was originally spelled "Bouno Yushi," but it was changed to its current name "Moseushi" in 1898.

For those planning to visit Moseushi to check what it has to offer, here are the 10 Things to Do in Moseushi:
