Oya Stone Museum, Utsunomiya

4.6
#1 of 69 in Museums in Tochigi Prefecture
Specialty Museum Museum
Anyone with an interest in geology or engineering will be enthralled by the carved, angular faces of the mines at Oya Stone Museum. Fairly modest in size, the museum manages to offer a wealth of information regarding the mining operations done here--from primitive 17th-century toils to the current advanced technological pursuits of the rare Oya stone, found only in this area. From here you'll have the opportunity to venture into the vast mine, colorfully lit and covering an enormous 20,000 sq m (215,278 sq ft). Bring a jacket along with you, as it can get a little chilly inside that gigantic cavern.
