Kitakami City Oni no Yakata (北上市立鬼の館)

3.5

Museum / Science Museum

"A museum located a 20-minute drive from JR Kitakami Station. The museum was opened in 1994 to present information on oni, mythical Japanese creatures alternately translated as ""ogres"" and ""demons."" The museum introduces all kinds of oni, from scary ones to cute and cuddly ones. Exhibits include a large number of oni masks, including a giant mask three-meter-tall and weighing 80 kilograms. The museum also introduces masks depicting oni-like creates from around the world with a focus on Thailand, Nepal, and other Asian countries."

Review of Oni no Yakata

鬼についての展示がある博物館です。
日本国内にとどまらず、世界の鬼や妖怪などが展示されています。
お面だけの展示が多かったのが少し残念でした。全身の展示であればもっと迫力があると思います。
小さな子どもは怖がってしまいそうな博物館でした。

鬼剣舞が有名な町なのですが、館内はさすがの鬼がたくさん。ここまで鬼について学べる所も珍しいと思います。ただ駅からは遠いので、レンタカーなどを借りて鬼の館→温泉コースがオススメです
Reviewed:2018/12/22 岩手県人ならば一度は訪れて下さい。
ゆっくりと鑑賞する気持ちが必要です。あくせくして見て回るのでは残念です。鬼とはなにか?なぜ、全世界に鬼が存在するの?そのヒントがここに在ります。恐い鬼から可愛い鬼まで沢山居ます。何故か関係なさそうな物まで有るので一度は訪れて欲しいです。

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region’s delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you’ll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
