Museum / Science Museum

When a tsunami was generated after a major earthquake in 1854, Hamaguchi Goryo set fire to the rice straw stacked in his own fields in order to guide the local villagers toward safety. This museum is comprised of two halls, Hamaguchi goryo Archives introducing the life of Hamaguchi Goryo and anecdotes relating to his character, and Tsunami Educational Center which conveys the dangers of earthquakes and tsunami as well as important disaster prevention knowledge. Game-based exhibits, videos, and simulators present disaster prevention information relating to the topics of first-aid, prevention, and recovery. Closest station: Yuasa Station.

有名な稲むらの火ですが、想像では刈り取った米の入った稲穂を燃やしたのかと思っていましたが、ここに来て初めて藁だと知りました。当時、藁は、草履や茅葺きなどに使っていたため、大事にされていたとのことでした。

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
