Special area for viewing of Former Head Office, Yawata Works

Popular Spot
The government-operated Yahata Steel Works, a registered World Heritage site, were founded in 1901. Still in operation today, the site’s facilities are not open to the public; however, visitors can come look at the exterior of the old head office building from this viewing space. A red brick structure with a dome located in the center of the roof, the former head office building was once the nerve center of the steelworks. Inside, informational panels and photographs present the history of the site; volunteers also serve as tour guides. A board near the entrance is provided for photographs. Space World Station is the closest station.

    I wasnt sure what to expect with this attraction:a viewing platform where you can look at an old industrial administration building, even a UNESCO World Heritage listed one, doesnt sound very...
  • 工場の敷地内にあるので、文字通り遠くからの眺め

    眺望スペースまで、パネル展示があります。VRとタブレットの解説をしてくれます。しかし、やはり遠い。予習してゆくと良いと思います。わたしは、いのちのたび博物館での展示「明治日本の産業革命遺産」の後に行きました。
