Nagoya City Archives (名古屋市市政資料館)

4.0

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This public archives building built in 1922 was used as the site for the former courthouse, and in addition to exhibiting materials concerning Nagoya’s municipal government, items connected to the courthouse are regularly on display. Inside the spectacular Neo-Baroque-style building made of brick and granite sights such as the stairwell with its beautiful stained-glass windows and the magnificent restored conference hall are not to be missed. Visitors can also tour a reproduced courtroom under the old Meiji Constitution and a prisoner lock-up area. The guided tours of the building provided by the staff are also popular. The building is a five-minute walk from Higashi Ote Station on the Meitetsu Seto Line.

月曜日以外は無料で開放。地下には、独房と雑居房が配置され、その中には、トイレの代わりに水栓とたたきの流し。時間を持て余すのを防ぐためか?再犯防止のためか?六法全書が雑居房の隅にひっそりと置かれていた。元日産のゴーン会長もこういうところに数か月も入れられていたのであろうか。静けさの中に、ふと感じるものがあって面白い。

          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
