    平成最後の日に行きました。 鉄腕アトムと鉄人28号のオブジェが入口前に飾られていて何とも怪しい雰囲気を醸し出してます。 館内に入ると、すごい勢いでまくし立てる館長さんが、館内の説明と写真を撮ってくれます! 全力で案内してくれる館長さん!英語も操ってとにかく面白いです^_^ 中に入ると忠実に昭和の街並みを再現していて、70年代80年代初頭の世界観が味わえました。 明星や映画のポスターが所々で掲示され...

    Travel / Tourism
    Tochigi Nikko-shi Kawamata
    Hot springs bubbling up are a common feature along the Yuzawa Ravine, through which flows a tributary of the Kinugawa River. It's known for the sinter cones (funsento) that have formed in several places. Calcium carbonate and other hot spring deposits accumulate around the hydrothermal vents, forming conical or bamboo shoot-shaped formations called sinter cones. Larger ones can reach 80 centimeters, but the exteriors tend to be soft and collapse very easily. This sinter cone spouts a continuous flow of 90-plus-degree water. It was designated as a National Natural Monument in 1922.
