Review of Esashi Native District Cultural Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/11/04 藤原の郷とご一緒に
藤原の郷は小説の世界ですが、こちらは江差の歴史です。一番も奥の仏教のテーマゾーンは独特の世界観です。
江差の米、ホップ、江差牛の説明はよくわかります。
Reviewed:2019/10/10 こちらもかなり立派な施設
藤原の郷の隣りにあって、こちらもかなり立派な施設。
江刺金札米にりんごや馬などの農業の歴史を紹介するコーナーは、古代から現代までの壮大な年表で解説。個人の発願で造られた中善観音の仏像群も圧巻です。
Reviewed:2019/01/05 奥州市・江刺地域の文化館
岩手県・奥州市・江刺地域の郷土文化を紹介している文化施設です。岩手県南に住んでいる方は一度は訪れたい文化館だと思いました。

          around-area-map

          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.
