毛利邸の一部を活用した博物館。玄関で靴を脱いで入る。常設展は展示数も少なく、大したことはないという人もいたが、有名な「三本の矢の書状」が見られた、興味深かった。同様の趣旨のことは書かれていたが、子供達を呼んで矢を折らせるドラマのような話ではなく、あれは作り話であったことがわかった。実際の書状の内容はいろいろな内容を含んでおり、普通の父親の説教っぽくて現実的であり、かえって親近感が湧いた。

          Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
