The Ammonite Centre is the first museum in Japan built on a fossil site.
The highlight is fossil digging! At the reception desk, pick up a helmet, gloves, hammer, and chisel to excavate fossils at the outdoor fossil pit.
Swing your hammer and forget the time as you hunt for shell and shark teeth fossils as well as ammonite fossils. This workshop lets you feel like a treasure hunter, and is popular for people of all ages from children to adults.
