A museum on the science behind cultured pearls, an excellent collection of antique jewellery and a fascinating exposition of Mikimoto's life are nestled within an immaculately kept zen garden. If Queen Elizabeth visited, an oak was planted to commemorate that, so should you.
The exhibits explaining how the cultured pearl industry was founded and how they are made is interesting. The pearl shops are good for a special souvenir. The pearl divers can only be seen from a distance and while interesting is nothing special.
