The Konoha Fossil Museum exhibits a vast display of fossils and precious stones mined locally in the Shiobara area, as well as some four hundred foreign exhibits (spanning approximately two hundred and twenty species).
Locally mined gemstones can be purchased, and visitors can also participate in fossil searches among the grounds.
A huge variety of fossilised remains is on show (many, it should be noted, are not extracted from their original rock-ore), including various leaves (maple, cherry, etc.), as well as animals & insects, including spiders, dragonflies, frogs and rats.
For lovers of the natural world, or for those who are simply interested in exploring something a little different, the Konoha Fossil Museum is highly recommended for visitors to Nasushiobara.
