Especially in the Valley of the fossil excavation experience while becoming dusty hard fossils was looking for. Home Decorating with delight upon finding a fossil of coral and really happy I was. Also staff who you kindly in the subways answered children's questions politely.

Easy to understand explanation of how section also are beautifully displayed and have no interest in the minerals without getting tired, we could see. It seems better took a tour time is 1 hour. It is also explained that Japan is bent on "winding", this time along the Southern Alps snow of the Northern Alps from itoigawa city drive come in deep emotion. If you come in itoigawa-Shi, is a recommended place.

  • Awesome museum! You can search for fossils in the rock yard, and then the friendly staff will identify and label them for you!
  • Very intereting geological museum. The only museum in Japan dedicated to Japanese jadeite. No restaurant or food option so pack your own lunch.
  • Excellent, award-winning natural science museum and a great first place to visit if you are interested in the Itoigawa UNESCO Global Geopark. The exhibits here use specimens collected in Itoigawa Geopark to tell the story of how the Japanese Islands were formed and how the earth has and continues to shape our lives. Children get in free!
