  • It is close to Nagaoka Interchange by car, but if it is public transportation such as a train bus, there are only five buses a day from Nagaoka Station, and access is inconvenient anyway. Because Jomon pottery is also a famous production area for fire-fire earthenware, the exhibition related to the Jomon period was excellent, such as the restoration of the scenery at that time.

  • The contents of the permanent exhibition are substantial. The audio commentary in the exhibit is good. I understood the history of the whole of Niigata Prefecture well. In particular, I felt that they were exhibiting a spot on the Jomon period, the snowcountry, and rice works.

  • This is one of the better natural history museums. You really get a feel for what it was like to live in the area 100 years ago, or 7000 years ago. The star of the show is the Jomon fire pottery, but they have foot impressions made of their kids, like prehistoric baby photos. Also don't miss the tooth modifications. That stuff can't be undone, and it lasts 3000 years (of your teeth do, which they did in this case). To me the fire pottery looks more like water but it's just a decoration.
  • An interesting history of transport in Niigata. To realize the achievement of Kakuei Tanaka. I'm given to toil until 2 hours from Tokyo has failed. Thanks to the most modern conveniences.
