Tsuwano Kyodo-kan Museum (津和野町郷土館)

3.5

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

A cultural facility established in 1921 at a time when it was the only local history museum in the prefecture. It houses and exhibits a wealth of historical materials ranging from the ancient Jomon period to the present. Originally it was in the Hanko Yorokan's book storehouse but moved to its current location in 1940 as part of a project marking the legendary founding of Japan. The museum houses the rich historical and cultural heritage of the region, including items related to Tsuwano Castle, which was occupied in turn by the Yoshimi, Sakazaki, and Kamei clans. It has displays lots of items worth seeing like materials on Hanko Yorokan, the Tsuwano domain school responsible for training, and a 400-year-old breech-loading swivel cannon, one of only nine remaining in Japan.

Reviewed:2019/10/19 津和野を訪ねる場合必ず訪ねる所
津和野を訪ねる場合必ず行かれると良いと思います。展示を見るのはもちろんですが、郷土館には津和野町の学芸員も事務所におられ、解らないところや、聞いてみたいこと等訪ねると良いと思います。
興味が有ること有れば余計訪ねると良いと思います。
Reviewed:2019/09/05 津和野の歴史がよくわかる
津和野の歴史がコンパクトにまとめられている。興味があったのは、藩主の書いた絵で、大名は時間に余裕があるのでしっかり勉強するので素人してはなかなかよく描けている。
Reviewed:2019/05/31 資料が豊富です。
津和野町は、全国から訪れる人が多いだけあって、いろんな切り口からの観光資料が、たくさん揃っていると感じました。
また、スタッフさんも親切です。

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
