有料ではありますが、遭難事故の前後の経緯が説明・写真や装具なdの展示により、とてもわかりやすいものでした。隣接して関係者の墓地がありますが、そこを訪れる前に行くとより理解しやすいと思います。

          Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori's fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
