The Kiseki Museum of World Stones (奇石博物館)

4.0

Museum / Science Museum

A museum in Yamamiya, Fujinomiya City. It was opened as Japan's first museum for stones in 1971. The variety of rare stones are displayed here not according to a mineralogical viewpoint, but using a viewpoint that compares them to animals or plants, based on Unkonshi-Japan's first expert stone manual, written by Sekitei Kiuchi, a naturalist of the Edo period. There are also exhibits of gemstones, luminous stones, dinosaur fossils and other fossils, and of materials related to Kenji Miyazawa (famous poet and author) as a geologist.

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
