  • In the center of the building, a Japanese-Tang envoy ship restored to the appearance of 1200 years ago is on display. It seems surprisingly large, but if you visit the ship, you will understand that it would have been a great resolution to sail the open sea for days.

  • The museum has English speaking volunteer staff. You can tour the surrounding area, with a guide, if you make a reservation.
  • It was a powerful shipyard that lined up with cattle windows at the center of shipbuilding in the Seto Inland Sea for a long time. During the Edo period, we received requests not only from the Seto Inland Sea, but also in the construction of naval vessels such as 徘雨闲丸 ships (Royal barges) and Seki vessels in the various domains.  It might be because there was an authority and trust based on the technical power of the master carpenter of this ground. For example, Mr. Tomosawa, a shipbuilder, can tell the state of stone and build a ship and a ship of Nagshu clan, and make a skeleton of the ship's boat. The nearby Katsura Hama shrine is dedicated to the board drawing of the Nagune Seki ship in the year of the Tenpo 14 (1842).
