Uwa Rice Museum (宇和米博物館)

4.0

Museum / Science Museum

This museum in Unomachi 2-Chome, Uwa-cho, Seiyo City is located inside the relocated wooden school building of the former Uwa Town Elementary School. It features a number of exhibits about rice including old agricultural implements and specimens of rice plants. The museum also has a cafe where visitors can compare the flavor of Uwa Rice against brand-name rice varieties from across Japan. Other attractions include a museum shop that sells a variety of rice-related products and a blackboard room where visitors can scribble on the walls to their hearts’ content. Visitors can also test their speed and skill in a “floor-wiping race” down the former schoolhouse’s hallway.

Reviewed:2020/02/14 有名人が拭き掃除をする旧小学校は109mの廊下を持つ建物です
明治、大正、昭和の建物が集まり、旧小学校は109mの廊下を持つ建物です。長い廊下は有料ですが、拭き掃除をしましょう。有名人が多数参加しています。もちろん米博物館なので、地元の米造りが展示されています。面白いのは、日本の米の稲が展示されて、見比べられます。

米博物館とありますが、実は宇和町小学校の旧第1校舎です。内部を見てびっくりです。109mあるという長い廊下があります。古い小学校がこのような形で残っているのは素晴らしいですね。感動ものでした。
Reviewed:2019/03/27 本当に疲れた!!!!!!!
109mの廊下の雑巾がけチャレンジやって来ました。
普段運動をしていないため、本当に疲れてヘロヘロになりました。
でも、一生残る良い思い出が出来ました。

平日に行ったためか客は少なく超遅いタイムでしたが、恥は最低限で済みました(汗)
雑巾がけが200円。タイムによって変わるバッジも欲しいなら、さらに300円です。
雑巾、膝当て、サイズ別の上履きは200円で博物館側が提供してくれます。

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
