Sado Island’s Ogi Folk Museum, Sengokubune Exhibition Hall佐渡国小木民俗博物館・千石船展示館

Museum / Science Museum

This museum is located in a wooden schoolhouse built in 1920 that has been preserved as-is. Inside the building which still bears the vestiges of its days as a schoolhouse are displays for a collection of over 30,000 folk materials that have been designated as important tangible folk-cultural properties, including tools and equipment for shipbuilders. During the Hakusan Maru Matsuri festival held every summer, the Hakusan Maru, Japan’s first fully-restored sengokubune (wooden freight ship) that is on display in the museum, is pulled out under human power and an impressive large white sail that is 155 tatami mats in size is raised.

We only got to look into the barn at the ship there since the attraction was closed, but wow it was cool.
