Ainokura Folklore Museum (相倉民俗館)

4.0

Historical Monument

This folk history museum sits in a corner of the Ainokura Gassho-zukuri Village, a World Heritage site located in the mountains east from Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway's Gokayama Interchange via the Hietsukyo Gassho Scenic Route. It is notable for its two gassho-zukuri style buildings with straw-thatched roofs which were once a residence of the old Ozaki Family. The museum exhibits articles once used by villagers, as well as historical materials that convey the village's tradition of mutual aid. On the second floor, guests can get a close look at the unique framework and internal construction of gassho-zukuri buildings. The museum's second building, the Ainokura Traditional Industry Museum, contains historical materials about washi (Japanese paper) and saltpeter, two of Gokayama's traditional industries. Visitors at the museum can learn about the history of Japan through the wisdom and hardships of ancestors.

二館共通入館券500円で少しお得になっています。民族館は江戸時代に使用されていた生活用具や、養蚕に使われていた器具などが展示されています。部屋の真ん中に囲炉裏があり、ござの上に座布団が置かれ、家族団欒の光景が目に浮かびます。階段を登り2階に上がると合掌造りの屋根裏を見ることが出来ます。
Reviewed:2019/10/20 昔の生活様式
駐車場からまっすぐ奥へすすむとある相倉民俗館。集落の外観や雰囲気にも連綿と伝わってきた人々の暮らしの趣があるが、家の内部や昔の生活様式に触れられる数々の展示品の他にも、囲炉裏を前に流れる映像でこちらの生活が紹介されています。

          Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
