The partner was non plussed at the marimo balls but the Japanese thought they were wonderful with many aharas. You catch a boat which takes you on a tour of the lake and the marimo island where you can see a collection of them bobbing about in tanks.
The back of the museum has a walk to active volcanic fumerals, Bokke mud pools, which is well worth doing. There is also a good coffee and cake shop towards the museum end of the main tourist street drag which offers you a coffee fix and like cakes :).
I avoided the purchase of my own marimo algea ball which would have led to a crisis when it died, although most on sale didn't look like they were in good condition. Fridge magnets are easier to look after.
