Exhibition of the latest research

Research institutes conduct various research projects on agriculture, forestry, fisheries, food and the environment. Tsukuba Agriculture Research Hall exhibits recent research, focusing on six agricultural research fields, as well as forestry and fisheries. There is also a special exhibition on the intimate relationship between the soil, insects and agriculture.

Environmental diorama

Agriculture and forestry are concerned not merely with providing food and wood, but with protecting the earth and the rural environment. This diorama illustrates the role of paddy fields and farmland in the rural environment.

Museum of Agricultural Technology Progress

The Japanese people have made longstanding efforts to develop Japanese agriculture, striving for less labor and greater yield. This museum houses an exhibition of the agricultural tools that have been used by farmers in this process.

Rest space

Special exhibitions are occasionally mounted in this space.
