Takahashi City Local Museum (高梁市郷土資料館)

3.5

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This museum is about a 10-minute walk from JR Bitchu-Takahashi Station. The main building was the old Takahashi Combined Elementary and Higher Elementary School, which was built in 1904, and is now a designated municipal Important Cultural Property. It was preserved as an important representative of early Meiji architecture in 1972. Inside, it holds a collection of over 3,000 pieces of daily life items gathered with help from residents, and range from the Edo period through the early Showa eras. They offer a tangible sense of history. The ceiling of the meeting hall, with its Momoyama-style double-height stepped construction, offers a grand sense of the Meiji period.

Reviewed:2020/02/29 意外に楽しめる資料館
学校の建物を利用した地域歴史資料館で、意外に楽しめました。電柱の掲示、蓄音機、扇風機、鍋釜などの台所用品などなどとありとあらゆる地域の古いものをかき集めてきたような場所ですが、これが意外に楽しめました。この地域がたばこ産業に依存したものだったのが興味深く思いました。

高梁市にある郷土資料館。資料館ということで、懐かしい道具類が所狭しと並んでいますが、必見は2階にある講堂。天井がアーチ形になっていて珍しいモダン建築でした。
Reviewed:2018/06/13 2階の折上げ格天井は一見の価値あり。
蓄音器、柱時計、オルガン、簪、おもちゃ等、ほんとうにいろんな物が集められていて、けっこうおもしろかったですよ。それと、展示品もさることながら、建物も一見の価値ありです。外観を見るだけでもきっちりと造られ、また、きれいに修復保存されているのがわかります。でも、一番のみどころは2階の講堂の天井です。手間のかかる二重折上格天井がすばらしかったです!

          Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan’s Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
