Ibaraki Fungi Museum (Ibaraki-ken Kinoko Hakase-kan)2.0
A nature themed museum where you can learn about fungi, edible wild plants, Japanese Urushi lacquer trees and bamboos as well as about the functions of forests and its relationship with human. The facility, assumed to be the dwelling of Kinoko Hakase (Dr.Fungi), has a symbol tree in the middle of its hall and you can enter its cave in the trunk where a number of acorns are found. Eight exhibition rooms include Doctor's Study, the Craft Park in the Forest, Doctor's Laboratory, the Fairy Garden, Doctor's Mushroom Factory, the Restaurant in the Forest, Doctor's Balcony and Doctor's Garage. Exhibits are displayed with films, graphics and models so that children can easily understand and have fun.
