Shiroishi Castle History Museum

Museum / Science Museum
Approximately a 10-minute walk from the Shiraishi Station on the Tohoku Main Line, and a 10-minute drive from the Shiraishi Interchange off of the Tohoku Expressway, this museum is located alongside the Ote Ichinomikado gate to the Shiraishi Castle inside the Masuoka Park. The shop on the first floor of the castle sells items unique to the castle and other Japanese washi paper-craft products, and other local specialties such as Umen. One can enjoy at the restaurant various dishes incorporating umen such as shojuro umen using white miso, and their specialty soft ice cream. On the second floor is located the historical archive as well as a 1/100 scale model of the donjon surrounding the castle and other displays showing the steps by which the model was built. On the third floor is a theater which plays films in which the castle was used as a backdrop.

  • 立体ハイビジョンシアター!

    なんといってもここの目玉は3階にある「立体ハイビジョンシアター」。200インチのスクリーンで白石城にまつわる歴史ムービーを上映している。この日はコロナ禍もあって、我々夫婦だけの貸切上映。専用眼鏡をかけて鑑賞したが、槍や弓矢、人が画面から飛び出してくる立体映像が大迫力!映画のタイトルは、奥羽列藩同盟秘話「賊にはあらず」だったが、直前に観た「武家屋敷」が使われていたので、いっそうリアルに歴史を感じるこ...
  • 3D上映の宮城野・信夫の仇討ちがよかったです。

    宮城野・信夫の仇討ちは、知らなかったので、よかったです。主役2人の女優さんの迫力の演技がよかったです。片倉家の殿様や仙台藩主が、農民の仇討ちを認めた懐の太さをかんじられました。由井正雪も、興味がわきました。
  • 見どころは3Dの立体ビデオ
    3.0 Reviewed:2019.06.13
    お土産物の売り場もありますが、見どころは3Dの立体ビデオ。「片岡小十郎、帰るに及ばず」と題したビデオを拝見しました。小十郎の荒武者ぶりに真田幸村の遺児、阿国姫の逸話を交えた内容で、小十郎の愛されキャラがよく分かる。ちょっと心が和みました。
