Chido Museum (致道博物館)

4.0

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:2020/03/08 洋館をめあてに
鶴岡城の西側にとても目立つ洋館が2つ立ち並んでいる。1つは元警察署らしいが、洋館なのに大きな鬼瓦があって和洋折衷が馴染んだ感じが良い。もう一つ大きな和風建築があり、外から眺めているだけでも楽しい。中は藩校である致道館にあったものが展示されている。

僕は、東海地方の生まれで、愛知県犬山市の明治村へは、車なら50分、名鉄電車で1時間32分くらいの所に住んでいた。子供の頃はちょっとしたサイクリングのつもりで自転車で明治村に遊びに行ったものだ。
古い建物がどんどん壊されて味気のない鉄筋コンクリートの建物がどんどん増えていった時代に子供時代を過ごした僕には、明治村に移築された明治時代の建物がすごく魅力的に思えた。

いろいろあって行く予定でもなかった(失礼)致道博物館へ。事前の下調べがないので最寄りのバス停くらいしか分かることがないまま受付へ、入館チケットを買う時点で受付の方に色々アドバイスやら説明やらしてもらいました。
施設内は一部を除き撮影NGです。なのでなんとか記憶を焼きつけようとじっくりキャプションを読んでいるとあら不思議あっという間。2時間も滞在してしまいました。いそいで次の行程へ、危ない危ない...

          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.
