Shirashima National Petroleum Reserve, one of the oil stockpiling bases dotted throughout the country to provide a steady supply of petroleum, is located 8 km offshore in the Hibikinada Sea.
The sea-based petroleum reserve is a global rarity because it consists of 8 ships floating on the sea that carry petroleum. It stores approx. 10 days worth of crude oil consumption for Japan. The museum introduces this reserve's facilities and functions using video, exhibit panels, and computer games.
*Reservations are required only for tour groups of 10 or more. To apply, see the website.
