Visit Kanzaki Iseki, a designated historical site, and delve into Ayase’s history

Central Area 4h30m

At the “Kanzaki Iseki Shiryokan” (Kanzaki Museum of Relic Materials) you can see the history of Ayase from the Paleolithic Age to modern times all in one place.

If you make reservations in advance you can also try making magatama (comma-shaped jewels) at any time. Why not pick up some of the famous Kanzaki Relic Cookies from “Snack Workshop Asa no Ha” as souvenirs as well?
