Oya Stone Museum, Utsunomiya
(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Such as caves go well, but was this quarry is world totally different from them. Due to the ideal temperature and light, seen a fantastic atmosphere. Lit by light like small clouds, or there is some crumbling stone quarry, outside the light is leaking the internal temperature is low because, it was mysterious. Can borrow a coat stuff at the entrance as against the cold, so feel free to try.

  • Speaking of Utsunomiya Oya region. Is the site of the quarry is a large underground space available! Overwhelmed by the huge underground thing with video because it used for a famous movie or PV may in fact. Have been exposed at all times is the only part of the whole, but lit up fantastically. Also over the years through a temperature of 10 ° C before and after was rather comfortable in Tochigi in cold winter.
