Decent steps and walking path provided in the stone museum. There are steps at the entrance and the rest is generally slopes and 1-5 steps. Can be very cold depending on when you visit. Very clean...pleasant surprised to see no bat's droppings. Surprised that the facility is used at times for filming and exhibition. Enya did a part of her... More

We visited here for the first time in Oct. 2015. The place is nicely built up as a tourist attraction and lit up. Apparently, the quarry has been used as location for company festivities (e.g. Dom Perignon, Omega, Audi) and can be rented for wedding ceremonies. It's history dates back to the second world war, when it was used as... More

Wonderful - underground stone quarry and former aircraft factory now a museum and event location. Long flights of steps but worth the effort for the atmosphere. Awe inspiring!

A short drive from Utsunomiya city is the Oya stone museum. Nothing much around the area except for the Oya stone mine. Basically a big underground dug out area. Before I went there I didn't expect much but it was worth the visit to see the scale of the old underground stone mine. If you go into Utsunomiya city you... More

The Oya stone museum was very nice, not too expensive, and worth the drive if you are in town. The underground portion can be cold if you visit in the winter months, so dress warmly.

This was an odd one. The 'museum' was basically an underground storage space cut out of stone, and a room of facts and old tools upstairs. To get there you have to take a bus pretty far out into the countryside where nothing really is. except of course, this 'museum'. Basically it's just a very large open space, underground. There's...

Quite actually there is not a lot to see except for huge empty halls but they are well worth a trip there. The atmosphere is great with the space, the lights and the fog. My friends almost couldn't stop me taking pictures - but be prepared: very dark (photographers) and very cold (everybody). Don't forget to go to the tempels... More
