Experience making algae salt / Restoration exhibition hall of ancient salt making ruins

Reproduce the origin of salt making

It is located on "Kami-kamagari Island" on the Aki Nada Tobishima Kaido. It all started with a piece of earthenware picked up at the beach in 1982. The pottery, which was the bottom of the ancient salt-making pottery, became a clue to the elucidation of the ancient romance, along with the salt-making remains (Okiura site) excavated after that. The Ancient Salt Remains Restoration Exhibition Hall is an exhibition hall that has been restored so that you can observe the ancient earthenware salt relics as they were excavated, and covered with a dome. In the seaweed making experience, you can experience the ancient salt making method that concentrates seawater using seaweed (Hondawara) soaked in seawater and earthenware. You can feel the emotion of making it with time and effort, the natural taste, and the ancient romance on your skin.
