Kuji Amber Museum

Kuji is one of the three biggest Amber fields in Japan. Amber in Kuji is believed to be the oldest in the world, formed about 85 million years ago. With variety of Amber exhibits, the museum provides interesting activities such as accessory making workshop and mining experience. I tried the mining and enjoyed a lot! It cost 1,500 JPY for 1 hour.   Restaurant "kunnoko"  next to the museum is servicing delicious western meals and is cozy place. (2017.July)
