2. Ferrite Kodomo Kagakukan (Children’s Science Museum)
location: Hirasawa, Nikaho City – 5 minutes from Nikaho IC (Nihonkai-Tohoku Expressway) by car
Ferrite Kodomo Kagakukan (Children’s Science Museum) is run by Nikaho City with many interactive displays for children to enjoy learning about the world of science.
On the second floor is a memorial hall which introduces the achievements of Kenzo Saito and Teiichi Yamazaki, who pioneered the use of Ferrite and who subsequently founded and developed TDK.
The museum also has a big play area for younger children and attracts families with children of all ages.
After leaving the children’s museum, why not also take in the nearby TDK Museum called “TDK Future History Museum”? It is located 1 kilometer from the Ferrite Museum and was re-opened in October 2016 after renovation.
The museum’s exhibits invite the visitor to imagine and experience life in 20 years time. This museum is more suitable for adults, but together these 2 museums offer families a rewarding time together.
