北斎館の近くにあるので、寄って見ました。 内容は、決して悪くはありませんが、入場料の割にはいまいちでした・・・
Reviewed:2018/10/08 灯がテーマの博物館とは興味深い
火を手に入れ、火を起こし、油を燃やしガスを燃やし、伝統に至るまでのさまざまな歴史。とくに日本において、灯がどのように進化してきたか、灯を扱う道具がどのように進化し、どのように生活に根付いていったかなどを順を追って勉強できる。1階奥の灯の明るさを体験する部屋が面白かった。油を使った行灯や蝋燭の灯がいかに暗いか、しかし当時はいかに明るかったが体験できる。仕組み自体が大したことはないが、個人的には面白か...

竹風堂の敷地の中にあります
駐車場も閑散期のため無料でしたが、博物館自体がお休みでした
雰囲気のある庭園の中にあり外観は良い感じでした

Nagano Main Areas

around-area-map

Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
