  • The National Museum of History and Folklore is more familiar to locals than the "History Expo". This museum opened in Showa 58. This is japan's only national history museum that comprehensively studies and exhibits Japanese history and culture, and is located in the ruins of Sakura Castle, and has a total floor area of approximately 1,000,000 square meters, which can be enjoyed by professionals and children. It takes about three hours to take a closer look.

  • I visited the national country with the expectation to some extent, but it was 100 times more impressive than i imagined. It's not something that can turn around in two or three hours. The exhibition of the cut which there was no other way of ethnic history was very interesting.

  • 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.
