On premises neighboring Utsubo Park stands OSTEC Exhibition Hall where about 30 powerful leading corporations and organizations that represent Japan exhibit and introduce their own cutting-edge technologies. With the nickname Teku-Teku Techno-Kan, it categorizes technology related to our daily lives to five courses consisting of the Course for Exploring New Materials, Course for Happy Life, Course for Observing the Earth, Course for Information and Images, and Course for Energy, and introduces them in an easy to understand manner using models and games. There are four tours to choose from when visiting this hall: tour of the hall only, tour including watching footage, tour including participation in a lecture, and tour including engaging in experimenting; only the first of the four is free. At the Techno-kun-no-kenko-kurabu (healthy club of Techno-kun) located on the third floor, visitors can have a robot measure their height, weight, instantaneous muscle power, etc., and gain an understanding of their basic physical strength; also, they can go around the hall to measure their physical strength age.
