“Rice Warehouse Museum is Cool!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

There are two parts to this museum so if you spend a little extra you can walk down the building and see into an old rice warehouse. Be aware that sections of this building are still used to store rice!
The first section, with the gift shops is quite interesting and there is a surprising amount of English labeling on exhibits. Hurray. The gift shop sell quite a lot of goods from the area and when I last visited, had a lot of interesting postcards on offer.
The second part of the building, can only be reached by walking outside of the building. It was cold, windy and rainy on the day I went, so not very pleasant. If you are not a rice aficionado, there are still a few things to look at, including old farming tools and housing set ups. There is less English here than in the main part. I thought it was okay, but not as good as the main museum.

Both places were worth a look if you are around Sakata with nothing to do!
