小高い場所にあり景色もキレイ。釜石の鉄産業の歴史を、資料と映像で紹介しています。大人向けの内容ですが、後半は子供も楽しめるものもあります。

なぜ釜石で製鉄が盛んになったか、疑問が解消しました。
近代の釜石、日本の製鉄について情報、資料が豊富でした。
もっと古い歴史にも踏み込んで欲しかったかな。

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region’s delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you’ll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
