  • Took my father's 85-year-old was working in the Kamioka mine. In the father's story, here exhibits would be used was in Shinjuku and the thing. I think five-star for people who are interested in the Earth Sciences. Even if you're a lame leg lift and move upstairs on the first floor, sit in some places, so it is okay.
