  • Very interesting. Has multi lingual electronic guide tablets
  • I enjoyed this place! Enough of the displays were in English so I was not lost at all. The topmost observatory allowed great photo-taking of the surrounding beach area. There was also an activity section where I could play with stickers in hiragana (in Ryoma's handwriting??) and arrange them to spell my name. All in all, a good trip.
