Let It Snow
The museum is dedicated to the memory of NAKAYA Ukichiro (1900-1962), a renowned scientist and essayist who was born in Katayamazu Onsen. Specializing in glaciology, he spent his life researching the formation of natural snowflakes and developed a device to produce artificial snow crystals. The museum shows Dr. NAKAYA's multifaceted achievements, offering various creative hands-on activities based on his experiments, such as creating diamond dust or making an ice pendant in the shape of a snow crystal. The museum cafe Fuyu no Hana (winter flower) presents a stunning view of Lake Shibayama.
