Reviewed:2020/03/01 夜中にこっそり砂の量を調整するイ〇チキ砂時計
見学は15分で十分。見る価値ありません。世界第二位の砂時計との触れ込みですが、砂を落とす量を測りきれないので夜中にこっそりと調整していると聞きました。
Reviewed:2019/09/24 色々と体験できるのがGood!
1年に1度引っくり返されるという、大きな大きな砂時計を、ただ見るだけの所かと思ったら、意外や意外、色々と楽しむ所があるんです。
外には、子供たちが喜ぶ遊具があり、館内では色々な体験コーナーがあり楽しめます。

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
