Museum / Science Museum

Opened in 1997, the Saitama Museum of Rivers teaches visitors through a variety of workshops about the Arakawa River, Saitama’s most prominent waterway, as well as the relationship between rivers and people’s lives. Its Arakawa Wakuaku Land facility is open from the Spring Equinox until the mid-November. This extremely popular “water athletics” park lets visitors learn about the scientific properties of water, flood control, and water use first hand through various activities.

Review of Saitama Museum of Rivers

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/02/01 大きな水車は圧巻
花園インターの近くにあり、日本一の大きさを誇る水車の迫力が圧巻です!
水車の近くに行くと、上から雨のように水しぶきが飛んできます!
こんにゃくを作るための水車もあり、博物館に入る前から面白いです。
博物館は荒川の歴史と人々と川の関わりがよく分かるように展示されていて、荒川の流れが体感できる体験シアターもあります。
展示内容から子供の自由研究に持ってこいです!
台風19号の被害で、駐車場が一部閉鎖...
Reviewed:2019/09/08 大水車がすごい
大水車が完成したとのことで見に行きました。
駐車料金300円は少し高く感じました。
高さ24mの水車は見ているだけでも圧巻です。
Reviewed:2019/08/03 大観覧車みたいな大水車
わざわざ横浜から見に来た甲斐がありました。言葉で説明の必要はありません。単純にでかいです。水車は人類が手に入れた最初の恒常的な動力源です。
ここへは池袋から東武東上線に乗って鉢形駅から歩いて15分ほどでした。荒川のほとりに公園があります。

          Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you’ll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
