Review of Hourseshoe Crab Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2014/03/10 Great place to kill some time
Kabutogani Museum is located right next to the dinosaur park, and is a great spot to visit if you have an hour or so to kill. You will receive a map and a stamp page to collect stamps as you make...

子供と一緒に笠岡へ
目的はここカブトガニ博物館と恐竜公園

公園には大きな恐竜がいるはいるはで
子供のテンションMax

カブトガニ博物館は水槽でカブトガニも見れますし、地球の歴史とカブトガニの成長過程が勉強になります
Reviewed:2018/03/12 子供の頃には遠足で
遠い昔に遠足で行ったことがありましたが、当時はカブトガニが貴重な物であることを知りませんでした。
大人になって価値が分かってから再訪したら、子供の頃よりも楽しめました。
隣の公園には恐竜がいるので、ぜひ子供連れて行ってみてください。

          Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan’s Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
