Denkoku-no-Mori Yonezawa City Uesugi Museum (伝国の杜 米沢市上杉博物館)

3.5

Museum / Science Museum

A museum dedicated to the Uesugi clan. Take a bus from Yonezawa Station and get off at the “Uesugijinja-mae” stop. The museum building incorporates traditional Japanese elements and is designed to mesh well with the surrounding scenery. Its collection of several thousand items relating to the Uesugi clan includes National Treasure-designated folding screens depicting the streets of Kyoto at the time from overhead, and the Uesugi-ke Monjo, a large collection of ancient writings and documents. Highlights include an exhibit in the museum’s permanent display collection which uses CG to give visitors a glimpse into the culture and lifestyle of the world of the Uesugi foling screens, as well as the Yozan Theater exhibit, which dramatizes the reforms Uesugi Yozan implemented in the domain’s government.

Review of Denkoku No Mori Yonezawa City Uesugi Museum

Reviewed:2019/10/20 米沢城址をカバーします
米沢城址のそばにあり、そのモダンな大きな建物に違和感を覚えます。その意欲はわかりますが、どうもチグハグです。
ただ貴重な歴史資料はよく揃っており、説明もわかりやすいです。でも鷹山シアターはTV的でちょっとシラケました。
Reviewed:2019/10/11 古文書と洛中洛外図屏風が目玉かな
洛中洛外図は普段はレプリカを展示しているが、2019年10月下旬から国宝の現物を特別公開するらしい。私は少し早めだったのでレプリカしか拝見できませんでした。この博物館は上杉家の古文書を多く収蔵しているので、古文書講座のような展示に力を入れているようです。上杉鷹山の業績を上映していましたが、主役が西村和彦さん、奥方は紺野みさ子さんでしたのでしっかり見いりました。

米沢城公園内にある大きな施設です。
施設内に入るだけは無料ですが、博物館、美術館などは特別展示室なので有料。
見所はエントランスにある、能舞台です。

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
