Chikabi Museum (ちかび展示館)

4.5

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This museum is located at the entrance of the work tunnels used to carve the underground tanks of the Kushikino National Underground Oil Reserve Base, Japan's first national oil reserve base. The museum is divided into four sections featuring intuitive hands-on exhibits that teach visitors about subjects including petroleum and how the oil reserve base works. The base is comprised of 10 underground oil tanks carved out of the bedrock capable of holding a total of 1.75 million kiloliters of oil. This volume, which is the equivalent volume of around 1.4 Tokyo Domes (a multipurpose stadium), is roughly the amount of oil that Japan uses in about three days.

Reviewed:2020/08/02 ふらっと立ち寄ったが、これが最高の体験になった
地下備蓄について知っている人はどれだけいるでしょうか。私は全く知りませんでした。喜入の石油基地は目につく大きなタンクがありますが、ここは地下深くの岩盤の中のため目に見えるインパクトはありません。ただ、受付の方の分かりやすい説明(感動するレベルでした)と展示品(模型・実物あり)で、知らない知識がどんどん入ってきてそのスケールの大きさについて想像を掻き立てられます。目に見えないからこそ感じるロマンが...

年に一度、夏祭りがあり子供達が楽しめる内容でした。石油備蓄についての展示館で、海の近の高台にあります。あのあたりは観光地らしいところがないので、こちらの展示館は価値がある場所だと思います。
Reviewed:2018/03/02 ちかびは地下備蓄基地の事です。知りませんよね?
金山蔵を見学して感激した話しをしていたら地元の親方から『あんたはまだちかびも見ちょらんがねー』と言われてしまいました。ちかびとは何ぞや?と訪れてみると何と国家プロジェクトの石油備蓄のための串木野地下備蓄基地でした。大きなタンクが並ぶ備蓄基地は見た事がありますが、まさか岩盤を利用した地下貯蔵庫があるなんて全く知りませんでした。マスコミにも全く取り上げられていないので、これは自慢出来る題材かも?作業用...

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
