Kanagawa Prefectural Museum of Natural History

This surprisingly good earth science museum in Odawara is located near Iriuda Station on the Hakone-Tozan train line. Check out the link below for a map and more information in Japanese. It is well worth a visit on a rainy day or if you want a break from the heat of summer. Great for the kids too--dinosaurs, mammoths, insects galore!

"Inside the unique building are displays of fossils of dinosaurs and ammonites, and the 4.6 billion year history of the earth is explained from the viewpoints of "earth", "life", "Kanagawa" and "symbiosis"."--Kanagawa Now

3 mins. walk from Iriuda sta. on the Hakone Tozan line
