The Minamata Disease Archives is an exhibition facility established with the aim of advancing a further understanding of Minamata disease and of mercury, passing on lessons from Minamata disease and contributing to the development of research on Minamata disease and mercury.
The Minamata Disease Archives is located at Manabi-no-Oka (Hill of Learning) in Eco Park Minamata, which is home to three learning facilities (the Minamata Disease Archives as well as the Minamata Disease Municipal Museum and the Kumamoto Prefectural Center of Environmental Education and Information) adjacent to a spacious lawn that stretches on the oceanfront, offering an excellent spot for eating and relaxing. Sitting on a vast 41.4-hectare expanse of land, Eco Park Minamata surrounds visitors with flowers and greenery, who can also take a stroll along a waterfront promenade, from which the beautiful scenery of the Shiranui Sea and Koiji Island can be seen, as they take in the ocean scent and the sound of waves.
