  • We visited this museum with lab mates when we went for a lab tour. It's worth to send half a day here. There are many activities which keeps us engaged all the time. They have microscopes too look at the sand grains which is really amazing. Also they have kind of designs which is simply cool. The specialty of this museum is this has a one year sand clock. Along with they have many small clocks which has many durations. At the end they have a different color sands where we can make some design,sketch and coloring.
  • Worth spending an hour if you are in the area. A small but interesting museum about hourglass which has the biggest hourglass in the world. Foreigners get a 50% discount if they show a valid passport/residence card. No English language descriptions though which can be a bore if you cannot read Japanese. There are many kinds of hourglasses on display including some stylish pieces (there is a blue hourglass to test the intensity of your love, of course both the partners need to hold it together) There is a sand art corner also for the artist in you. This was not my main destination in this area but I am glad I dropped by. I bought a nice hourglass (3 minutes time) and had a good Ice cream in the Summer heat .
