Let's excavate fossils from a 15 million year old rock mass

 

Today, Saitama Prefecture does not face an ocean, but many shark teeth fossils have been found in a 15 million year old strata, indicating that Higashimatsuyama City was once an ocean.
Visitors can excavate fossils themselves at the “Fossil and Nature Experience Hall”.
Come and use hammers and chisels to excavate fossils from an old rock mass right here in Saitama.
