Tōyo Kyōdo-kan

A place for enjoying many things like horseshoe crabs, handmade washi paper, and artwork.

Because horseshoe crabs have been around since over 200 million years ago without changing its form, it is called “a living fossil.” You can see such valuable creatures here.
In the handmade washi paper-making section, visitors can create their own postcards and bookmarks.
Many special exhibitions are held throughout the year, inviting visitors to see and learn about artwork, old everyday tools, and historical records.
