  • Tomioka Silk Mill
    Travel / Tourism
    Gunma Pref. Tomiokashi Tomioka 1-1
    When Japan first began trading with countries around the world in the late Edo period, silk was its biggest export. The Tomioka Silk Mill was founded as a model mill in 1872 by the Meiji government with the aim of improving the quality and productivity of silk production. The first buildings were timber-frame and brick construction, a pattern which continues to be used almost unchanged today. The site is filled with ways to learn about its history, including guided tours and a smartphone guide. The group of buildings from the time when the mill was first opened is designated Important Cultural Properties and National Treasures and was also collectively registered as a World Heritage Site in 2014.

    This historical building is located in Gunma University, Kiryu City, Gunma Prefecture, accessible by taking the Orihime Bus 10 minutes' ride from the JR Ryomo Line's Kiryu Station. It was built as a school building of the Kiryu High School's dyeing and weaving school in 1916, and relocated in 1972. It is a wooden building made from Japanese cedar wood. British Tudor style costumes can be seen decorating the gables and entrance arches. It was designated as a National Tangible Cultural Property in 1998, along with the engineering department's guardhouse and the former Kiryu High School's dyeing and weaving department's main entrance.

    桐生新町重伝建地区の奥にある群馬大工学部の中にあります。 大正時代に建てられた木造の近代建築です。もともとは左右対称で、教室だった建物の一部を解体し、残りを曳家して現在の位置に保存しているということでした。平日・日曜日も公開しているそうなので、公式サイトで開館日をチェックされると良いと思います。

    Gunma Isesaki-shi Sakaishimamura
    Located a 20-minute drive from the Honjo-Kodama Interchange on the Kan-Etsu Expressway, this structure is part of the Tomioka Silk Mill and Related Sites World Heritage listing registered on June 25, 2014. Included in the World Heritage listing alongside the Tomioka Silk Mill, Takayama-sha Sericulture School, and Arafune Cold Storage, this building was the starting point for the development of modern cold air flow silkworm raising and silkworm farm architecture. The structure, however, is still used as a private home and visitors may only view the garden.

  • Hinatami Yakushido

    Gunma Pref. Agatsumagunnakanojoumachi Shima 4371
    "This Bhaisajyaguru Buddhist temple is located a short walk from the ""Shima Onsen"" bus stop and Nakanojo Station on the JR Agatsuma Line in Agatsuma District, Gunma Prefecture. Officially the Yakushi Ruriko Nyorai, the temple was built in the late Muromachi period and was designated a National Special Protected Building. After WWII, the building was re-designated a National Important Cultural Property. The square temple hall has three bays, bears fine molding, and is one of only a few examples of Chinese style architecture in Japan. Often visited by those who have come to experience the area's therapeutic hot spring bathing and cure various ills, the temple is also affectionately known as the ""Pre-Bath Yakushi"" to many."

    Gunma Pref. Shibukawashi Ikahomachikaho 614-8

    駐車場の側と言う立地も有りますが、石段散策のついででも立ち寄れる距離です。 館内の資料は当時の貴重な物で当時の富裕層の生活を買い間見た感じがしました。 ステンドグラスが印象的で、たまたま宿泊したお宿にも有り資料を良く見たところ縁の有るお宿でした。 わざわざ立ち寄っても寄らなくても困らない施設ですが心の充実感は得られると思います。

    Gunma Kiryu-shi Hirosawacho

    日本最古の建築物ベスト5に含まれるほど歴史ある建物です。実際に住んでいる方と一緒に敷地内を見学し,短縮版ながらも30分たっぷり説明して頂きました。入口や玄関に武家屋敷時代の造りが所々に残っていたり,福沢諭吉の直筆があったりとわざわざ僻地まで訪れる価値があります。

    紅葉しかけた山の景色と渡良瀬川の流れ真っ赤な橋に囲まれた中に鮮やかな菊の花が咲いています。菊人形や大会の菊、スロープ付きで車椅子でも楽しめるので高齢者の方や施設の方が来ていました。休みの日にはお店も賑わっている様子。ながめ余興場が解放されて中を覗くことができます。タイムスリップできる空間です。

Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
