Nagiso Town Museum南木曽町博物館

Museum / Science Museum

Located 10 minutes away by car from JR Nagiso Station, the museum is composed of three buildings: the designated national important cultural property Wakihonjin Okuya (Hayashi family residence), the Tsumago Post Town Honjin restored to its late Edo period (1603-1868) layout, and a history museum made of reinforced concrete and wood. The Tsumago Post Town Honjin is a facility designated by the shogunate as a place of accommodation for the Daimyo, and has been faithfully reproduced with its late Edo period (1603-1868) layout. In addition, the history museum exhibits materials on topics such as Nagiso’s history and the historic preservation movement using easy-to-understand models and videos.

          Nagano Main Areas


          Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
