  • If you are interested in Japanese history and culture, this place is totally worth visiting, despite the long distance travel from the beaten track for tourists. As shown in the photos below, the museum exhibits consist of artifacts, both real and replica, miniature dioramas, and their descriptions, thoroughly covering from the prehistory to modern. The only downside is that the descriptions are practically available only in Japanese, and that you must rent a portable audio guidance (free of charge, and comes in English, Mandarin, or Korean) to understand what the displays stand for. Make sure to reserve plenty of time for the visit, as it will take a full day to explore all the exhibitions.
