Ryosenji Treasure MuseumMobs(モッブス)黒船ミュージアム

Museum / Science Museum

This is a treasure museum located adjacent to Ryosen-ji Temple grounds and is designated as a National Historic Site as the place where the Japan-US Treaty of Peace and Amity was concluded. The museum differs from general historical archives as it doesn’t just have materials related to the opening of Japan to the world and original documents, it also has video displays. There are collections on display with the theme of Perry, Blackships, the Nanban period and Intercultural exchange, and also a collection on display with the theme of “gender and religion”. The museum is located 10 minutes by foot from Izukyu-line Shimoda Station.

Review of Mobs The Museum of Black Ship

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/07/10 Black Ship Museum, it's okay.
A small museum about the Black Ships of Japan. The museum hosts a small store and pictures. One must pay about $5.00 to enter the entire museum. It's an ok place to see.
Reviewed:2018/04/03 A bit less then my expectations.
Lots of hype, posters, fliers, etc. But not a lot when you get there. At least that was my experience. Mind you my Japanese colleagues may have a different perspective after all one entire floor only...
Reviewed:2018/03/24 A museum about Perry and his black ships
This museum, while small, has some great artifacts and information about the start of the US-Japan relationship and Perry's two visits to Japan which resulted in the first US-Japan treaty agreement...

          Shizuoka Main Areas


          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
