Oya Shiryoukan (Oya Museum)

[From May Issue 2014]

201405-5

Oya Ishi is a museum that archives rocks. Using manual labor, rocks have been mined in Oya Town, Tochigi Prefecture since the Edo period. A display of tools shows how that process has become automated in modern times. Thirty meters below the surface are the remains of a massive 20,000 square meter underground mining site. With its fantastic atmosphere, this space is also used for art exhibitions and concerts.

Nearest train station: JR Utsunomiya Station. From there take the Kanto Bus bound for Oya/Tateiwa. It’s a seven minute walk from Oya Shiryokan Iriguchi bus stop.
Admission: 700 yen (general/high school students and above), 350 yen (elementary and middle school students)
Museum hours: 9:00am-5:00pm (last entry at 4:30pm)
Days museum is closed: not fixed
