Aim of This Museum

AIM OF THIS MUSEUM

We regard it as a site-museum of Sayanaike Pond.

This is the museum for the research of how our ancestors exploit the waste land with controlling water. We are intended to make this museum a research center for the history of exploiting the land in eastern Asia.

We will hold some cultural lectures or events to give you further acknowledgement.

Our museum was founded to inherit the important engineering heritages. We will introduce you the history of water control, irrigation and reclamation which has been deeply concerned to our daily lives from the ancient times.
