Chiran Peace Museum (ミュージアム知覧)

3.0

Museum / Science Museum

"This history museum's theme is one of ""The Blending Waves of Culture"". Its exhibits and theater shows teach about the history and culture of Chiran, where the cultures of Ryukyu and Yamato blended. Additionally, Satsuma's hidden Amida Buddhism, Bukeyashiki Street and Chiran Castle ruins are introduced in detail to visitors. There is also the Chiran Peace Museum nearby, and visitors can purchase a joint admission ticket here."

Review of Museum Chiran

Reviewed:2018/02/16 The displays here are quite academic, introducing the history and culture of the Chiran area.

「知覧特攻平和会館」の裏手にある博物館。入館料は300円。知覧特攻平和会館との共通券は600円。館内は一部を除き撮影禁止。
南九州の歴史・文化・民俗に関する資料が展示されている。薩摩藩主・島津氏は浄土真宗(一向宗)を禁止・弾圧していたが、様々な場所に仏像を隠して信仰し続けた「かくれ念仏」に関する資料が興味深い。見学者は非常に少なく訪館した時は数名のみであった。

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
