This museum is located in Hichiso Town, Kamo District. It has many exhibits with materials to learn about the 4.6 billion-year history of the earth from its creation until the present, including “Japan’s oldest stone.” Japan’s oldest stone was discovered in the riverbed of the nearby Hida River in 1970, and is a Kamiaso conglomerate containing gneiss clasts from over 2 billion years ago.

Review of The Oldest Rock Museum In Japan

Reviewed:2019/12/09 一時代昔のスタイルの展示館です
JR上麻生駅から歩いて20-30分にある道の駅の隣にある、UFOの形をした展示館は目を引きますが、数十年前のスタイルの展示館です。上麻生の地で最古の石が出たとのことで、その石が展示されています。当日は列車待ち時間があまりなかったので入館は出来ませんでしたが、土曜日でも入館する人は見かけなかった。時間がある時に一度は利用したいと思います。

道の駅に併設された博物館です。入場料が300円かかりますが、日本最古の石というキャッチフレーズに惹かれ行ってみましたが、恐竜の化石とは違いよく分かりませんでした。

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
