The Museum of Tetsu in Sakaki

- This museum exhibits Japanese sword masterpieces mostly created by the late Yukihira Miyairi, a swordsmith from Sakaki and a living national treasure when alive, and other swordsmiths of the Miyairi school, who have inherited the man's skill. Visitors can also see the artisan works from older eras.
- In the Sangyo Tenjishitsu Room (Industry Exhibition Room) on the second floor, the history of the manufacturing industry of Sakaki and products manufactured by companies in the town are on display. The historical exhibition allows the visitors to understand the path Sakaki has followed from wartime to today, during which it developed as a manufacturing-oriented town based on the factories established due to wartime evacuation of factories from larger cities.
