Hyuga City Museum of History and Folk (日向市歴史民俗資料館)

4.0

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This museum operates out of a remodeled and restored establishment called the Kawachiya, a cargo wholesale store and home complex built at the end of the Edo period. The site has been designated a Tangible Cultural Property by the city; the museum's courtyard and kura storehouse contain recreations presenting what life was like in a merchant home of the time. Divided into three sections dedicated to archeology, history, and folk customs, the museum preserves and displays items relating to each category and the history and culture of Hyuga City. The museum's collection includes a large number of the kinds of items merchants used such as account books, abacuses, and writing desks. The museum is a 20-minute drive from the Hyuga Interchange on the Higashikyushu Expressway.

Review of Hyuga City Museum of History and Folk

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/06/25 165年前の呉服問屋さんの商家を利用した資料館
日向市歴史民俗資料館は入場料オトナ220円が必要な日向市の資料館で、内部には歴史、民族、考古学に関する展示や美々津での人々の暮らしぶりを感じさせる民具があります。

資料館自体は江戸時代の廻船問屋の河内屋の建物を利用していて、その内部の見学も面白い所です。美々津の町さんぽの前に事前学習として訪れるには良いところだと思います。
Reviewed:2020/02/02 豪商・河内屋を改装
かつての廻船問屋を活用して資料館にしました。豪商だった屋敷を資料館するケースは全国各地にありますが、展示内容にそれほど注目すべきものはありません。縄文から古墳時代にかけての土器などの展示しているのはご愛敬か。やはり建物そのものと他の建築物の連なりに魅力があるのでしょう。
Reviewed:2019/09/18 美々津町並保存地区にあります
重要伝統的建造物群保存地区である美々津町並保存地区にあって、かつての廻船問屋・河内家を復元した資料館です。
中庭の枯山水庭園や蔵など、当時の商家をそのまま再現しています。

          An unmissable highlight of Kyushu, Miyazaki prefecture satisfies nature lovers with its dramatic gorges cut out of rugged cliffs, leading into waterfalls and beaches of green-blue water popular among surfers. Takachiho Gorge in the north of the prefecture tells a tale of centuries-old Japanese mythology in a fantastic setting, allowing visitors to explore the waters by boat before heading up to the cave at the Awano Iwato Shrine, where the sun goddess was said to have hidden, plunging the world into darkness.
