Takaoka Mikurumayama Museum高岡御車山会館

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This museum houses a permanent exhibit on Takaoka's mikurumayama floats, which have been designated by the government as both important tangible and intangible folk cultural properties. Only five of these floats exist in Japan. The history of the floats is said to have begun when Maeda Toshinaga, the town founder of Takaoka, gave a coach used when Hideyoshi Toyotomi welcomed Emperor Goyozei to Jurakudai in 1588 to the people of Takaoka. The gorgeous floats are decorated with a variety of industrial arts including goldsmithing, lacquer work, dyeing, and weaving. The museum's first floor exhibits a mikurumayama float designated as an important tangible folk cultural property, as well as parts of mikurumayama floats. Its second floor features hands-on exhibits on the music that accompanies mikurumayama floats and on mechanical dolls.

Review of Takaoka Mikurumayama Museum

Reviewed:2018/11/19 展示が上手
ロシア人込みで行った。
上から神様をみてはいけないと育ってきたのに、2階から見えるようになっていた。
高岡は北陸新幹線に備えて立派な会館にしたのだろうが、ほかの曳山会館より数倍素敵。
ロシアの子どもたちも着物を着て写真撮って大喜びだった。
Reviewed:2018/09/19 無料ガイダンス展示ゾーンもあります
時間がなかったので、入口の無料ゾーンだけを観ましたが、7基のミニチュア模型で雰囲気は味わえました。次回は有料ゾーンをじっくり見学するつもりです。
Reviewed:2018/06/27 おもわず豪華絢爛
すすめられて入ったが、思った以上に山車は豪華絢爛。桃山時代の伝統を継いでいるとのことで豪華絢爛。ユネスコにも登録されているようです。山車の車輪が特に他と比べて豪華絢爛。会館も2階で広く大きい。ゲーム感覚の展示もあり、それなりに楽しめる。

          Toyama Main Areas

          around-area-map

          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.
