国産めがねフレームの95%を生産しているというめがねの町、鯖江市にある博物館。入場は無料で、めがねの歴史を知ることができます。
その他ショップもあり、数多く並べられたフレームから、お気に入りのめがねを作ることもできます。
あいにく、コロナウイルス禍による緊急事態宣言が解除されてすぐの訪問で、私は体験できませんでしたが、めがね作りのワークショップなども、有料で体験できるようです。

めがねといえば鯖江、ということで行ってみました。ビル上部にメガネのモニュメントがあるため、場所はわかりやすかったです。駐車場、入場ともに無料でとても助かります。メガネの歴史、作る工程が示されていて興味がある人はいいと思います。メガネフレームの展示も数が多く、色々試せるので楽しかったです。

          Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
