    Fukushima Pref. Iwakishi Onahama Tatsumichou 50
    An aquarium standing on Onahama second Port’s Pier facing the Pacific Ocean. As befitting its location at the point where the Japan Current and Kurile Current collide, the aquarium’s permanent exhibit is dedicated to the theme of ocean fronts where two bodies of water meet. The aquarium is also notable for its many experience-based learning facilities, including the Aquamarine Egg, which has hands-on exhibits for children; and Janome Beach, one of the largest touch pools in the world. The facility is also dedicated to research and conserving the environments of marine creatures threatened with extinction.

    Nice variety of local and tropical environments. Informative for older children, tropical fish for young children to follow, relaxing for adults.

    Fukushima Pref. Iwakishi Joubanyumotomachi Mukaida 3-1
    The Iwaki Coal & Fossil Museum is dedicated to fossils and to the history of the coal-mining industry. There are displays of many precious fossils from all over the world, with the centerpiece being the Futabasaurus suzukii plesiosaur skeleton that was discovered in the Futaba Town of Iwaki City. The coal exhibition area has displays on the history of coal’s use as a fuel, focusing on the coal that used to be mined in the Iwaki region, and on the history of coal-mining. This part of the Museum includes a very authentic reproduction of part of a coal mine, which was used as a filming location for the movie “Hula Girls.”

    Some English explanations exist, so that foreigner can also enjoy. If you are sort of freak on something scientific this is the place you should visit. Scientifically coal and fossil are almost the...

    いわき市にある市立美術館。いわき市内で時間があったので、常設展のみ見学。ホームページでは、いろいろ収蔵品があるようですが、12月初旬の見学当日は、特別展が2階であり、常設展は1階の1部屋に前衛彫刻がいくつか展示されているのみでした。郷土作家の展示があるわけでもなく、名の知れた作家の作品を展示もなく、展示の量、質ともに貧弱な印象でした。今の展示では無料で市民の方に開放するなどした方がよいと思いました...

    Fukushima Minamisoma Ichiharacho Gorai Deguchi 194

    企画展だけだと無料で見学ができるようでしたが、常設展のほうも300円で見ることができます。 常設展のエリアには野馬追の様子とか、古い精錬所の復元などもあって南相馬の歴史を感じる展示がいろいろありましたが、20分程度のビデオは始まる時間に放送があり、ぜひ見ることをお勧めします。

    年に数回行きますが、それこそ参拝のような気分です。 ドイツ車、アメ車の個人コレクションやスクラップ扱いの自衛隊の戦闘機、ヘリコプター、趣味の模型が展示してあります。土日祝日に営業していますが、管理者の都合でお休みしてることもあるので要確認。 元々は建築関係の環境再現のための設備を改造した体育館のような建物です(高層マンションの最上階を実証実験するなどの建築関連の会社さんです)。 大人¥900で...
