Iron and Steel Museum
This is a museum on iron and steel unique to Kamaishi, which is the birthplace of modern ironmaking in Japan. A comprehensively produced theater introduces the progress of Kamaishi's ironmaking through a combination of sound, light, and visuals, based around a full-sized blast furnace replica. Visitors can enjoy learning about the history of iron through 3D visuals of ironmaking tasks and other visual equipment. There is also a commanding view of Kamaishi Bay from the viewing terrace.
