    Tottori Pref. Yonagoshi Oshinoduchou 57
    This is a memorial hall of the literary master Inoue Yasushi who served exchanging cultures between Japan and China. It is also a museum of the history of Tottori Prefecture which has had close relations with Asian countries since long ago. In the memorial hall, there is a display of the model of Inoue Yasushi’s study and items that he used for writing. The museum displays more than 2000 pieces of valuable Persian brocade in the “Persian Brocade section” which is said to be one of the three largest collections in the world. Also, in the “Mongolia section”, you can see displays that show the life of the Mongolian nomads. The facility offers a lot to see.

    順路に従って進んだため、最初、コンセプトが何なのか解りずらい博物館でしたが、最終に近い井上靖先生の書斎や生い立ちの展示を見てガッテンがいきました。そうなのです!井上靖先生が全て絡んだアジアに纏わる展示でした。それにしても一企業のオーナーの意向で建てられての博物館なので、利益が上がっているうちはいいのでしょうが、現在の来場者数では維持が将来どうなるのか心配です。

    公営の博物館なので入館料も安いです。高校生以下や70歳以上などは無料なので子供と一緒だとちょっとお得です。また企画展示も行われていることがあり、その際もセット(企画展と常設展示)でも料金は安いです。興味のある企画展示の時を狙っていくのもいいです。
