Review of Sakawa geology center

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/11/14 じっくりと地球の誕生から学べる
今から45億年前の地球の誕生から現在までの壮大なスケールでの旅が2時間余りで体験できました。
各地質時代の代表的な化石、特に佐川町から見つかった化石が多数展示されています。
また、恐竜の卵の化石やマンモスの牙の化石などもあり、興味深深でした。
Reviewed:2017/07/24 なるほどなあと感心
入ってすぐに、動く巨大な恐竜。センサーに反応してダイナミックに動くので、ちょっとテンションが上がります。
奥の展示では一つだった大陸がプレートテクトニクスで分断されていく様子をデモンストレーションする器具があって、これは面白い。なるほどなあと感心しながら拝見しました。
Reviewed:2016/10/10 動く恐竜が見られますよ
建物、入口すぐのところに
動く恐竜がおいてあります

高さは三メートル位、センサーで
人を感知して、上体と口を動かします

他に、地球の大陸の成り立ちを
三億五千年前からの動きで見せる
巨大なスクリーンのような仕掛けも

後は、化石や地質等の標本多数

一度は見る価値あるかも

          The largest of Shikoku's prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island's most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you're a pilgrim or not, Kochi's 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
