The Cattle Museum (Ushi no Hakubutsukan)1.9
Focusing on the relationship between man and cattle, this museum shows everything about cattle in its three zones: cattle's biology, history, and anthropology. Displays, collected from both inside Japan and overseas, include the fossilized whole body skeleton of Bison antiquus, a specimen of cattle's stomach with four separate compartments, and arts and crafts using cattle as a motif.
At the workshop, you can try making butter, ancient cheese, and ice cream from milk, a keychain from cowhide and a piece of paper from cattle dung.

The Cattle Museum is a nice place to stop by if you’re traveling on Route 4. We always take this road so we decided to have a look. Admission is inexpensive.
On the first floor, you learn about industry use of meat and some agriculture. The second floor is about different countries and their cows, the human relationship to cows in history, and scientific research.
On a nice day, there’s a stunning view from the upper terrace.
Overall, nice, small museum. It was very informational and I enjoyed learning a few things. However, they also had displays unrelated to cattle, which I thought was strange.
