OIDEYA Museum Complex: Footbath and Tourist Information

Presenting history and culture of Shimosuwa

OIDEYA is comprised of multiple facilities: Gishodo (a clock studio and museum), Hoshigato Museum Yanoneya (an obsidian museum), a footbath, and a rest area with all sorts of the town's tourist information. This makes it a great location to use as a base for walking around the town. You can even take part in a popular watchmaking experience here.

First floor offers seasonal information on walks around town via tourist brochures and digital signage, as well as a workshop studio where everyone from kids to adults have fun making clocks. The second floor is an exhibition room where visitors experience the history of time and clock through hands-on learning.

The courtyard hosts the world's first fully restored water powered clock tower Gishodai.

A black building next to the courtyard is another museum Yanoneya where you can learn about the history and relationship between Shimosuwa town and obsidian.
