The Nakama-shi Community Exchange Center houses a tourist information desk, an information center on the World Heritage Onga River Pumping Station, and the Nakama City History and Folklore Museum. The World Heritage Onga River Pumping Station information center explains the value of the station as a world heritage site, offers videos of the interior of the station which is closed to the public, and gives further details about world heritage sites in general.
