  • This museum dedicated to Ryoma Sakamoto sits high looking over the Pacific Ocean. It has great interactive areas for all ages to learn about one of the most important people who helped shape modern Japan. A great space to spend time, easily accessible with elevators opening up every space from rooftop to basement. For those interested in learning more there is a library of resources.
  • A good compact sized museum that is dedicated to Sakamoto Ryoma a Shogun who played an important role in the Edo period. There are bits and pieces of English descriptions however it’s not really enough to completely immerse yourself in the history. It’ll take around 45mins-1hour to finish the viewing. Sadly the video demonstrations are in Japanese with Japanese subtitles.
