The Discovery Room, on the first floor of Nanbo Kokusai Mura, is for children and adults who want to discover more about the world we live in. The room is packed with fossils, rocks, minerals, shells and so much more. We encourage our guests to touch and examine anything they would like - but carefully. We also have much of our huge "sand" collection in the Discovery Room. Please help us add to our collection. Bring us sand from your travels.
Our library consists of a large science section, an English language library of children's fiction and non-fiction, and a large section of Japanese novels for children. There is an arts and crafts area, many board games, legos, dominos, puzzles, photo gallery and much, much more. The Discovery Room is also our theater, our journal writing area, and it is often where we gather for "Discovery Discussions" in the evenings.
During summer camp, we can find campers in the Discovery Room from 5:00am, reading, playing games, working on the giant puzzle, finishing a journal entry and more. Please visit us and check it out!
