Chido Museum致道博物館

Museum / Science Museum

This is a museum in Kachu-Shinmachi Town, Turuoka City, Yamagata Prefecture which stores and displays 5,350 important items that fall under eight varieties of Important Tangible Folk-Cultural Properties relating to the heritage of the Shonai area. The museum takes its name from the Chidokan, the Shonai Clan’s samurai school, and items relating to that school are also on display. Several historical buildings such as the former Nishitagawa District Office and the old Tsurugaoka Police Station which are also important cultural properties were dismantled and rebuilt on the premises, which were the site of the Tsurugaoka Castle’s san-no-maru and the official residence of the Sakai family, the domain lord. The beautiful garden in shoin-zukuri style (a traditional style of Japanese residential architecture) is also worth seeing.

Reviewed:2018/11/14 明るい色だ
致道館の次は致道博物館を訪問しよう。しゃれた建物が多い。まずは旧西田川郡役所、ついで旧庄内藩主御隠殿、更に旧警察署庁舎を見学。庭が案外いい。
Reviewed:2018/10/01 鶴岡の歴史を知ることができます
鶴岡にゆかりのある古い建物群が立ち並び、その内部で歴史資料や鎧、農具などの展示がされています。山形県の国宝6点のうち2点の太刀を所蔵しており、今回はそのうちの1点を見学することができました。

警察署や郡役所が目立ちますが、御隠殿も見どころです。甲冑が多数展示してあり、好きな人は飽きないと思います。精巧に作られた長さが微妙に違う釣り竿に職人の技を感じました。

Yamagata Main Areas

Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
