番所山という自然公園にあり、駐車場からのきつい上り坂を少し歩くと着きます。 まず入口のところで目につくのは昭和天皇の詠まれた歌が刻まれた石碑です。 歌の中に名前を入れられるほどすごい人なのだと思いました。 1階はショップ、お手洗いがあり、新しい感じがしました。 2階は展示室でまずDVDを見てどんな研究してきた人なのか学ぶことにしました。 展示室はこの時は貝類がたくさん展示されている期間でした。 直... more »It is located in a natural park called Banshoyama, and it arrives when a little walk from the parking lot. First of all, it is a stone monument where the song that Emperor Showa was written was carved to notice at the entrance. I thought he was such a great person that he could put his name in the song. There was a shop and a restroom on the first floor, and it felt new. On the second floor, I first watched the DVD in the exhibition room and learned what kind of research i was doing. The exhibition room was a period where a lot of shellfish were exhibited at this time. There were sketches of autographs, and there were paintings and descriptions of shells that were drawn in detail. It was interesting to see how the arrow sits in the direction of the United States that Kumakusu went to when he was 19 years old, and the direction of Britain which went afterwards. I thought that the sea was very beautiful and still abundant nature was left.
白浜の近くにあります。15分のビデオを観てから展示エリアを回るのがおススメです。あの時代に世界中を駆け巡り、数々の研究成果を残した南方さん。正に日本を代表する偉人です。感動しました！ more »It is near Shirahama. It is recommended to go around the exhibition area after watching the 15-minute video. Mr. Southern ran around the world at that time and left a lot of research results. He is truly one of japan's most famous great men. I was impressed!
