Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum
A museum located along Prefectural Route 46 in Obata, Kanra Town, Kanra County.

    古い町並みが残っていて良い街です。この資料館は甘楽町の歴史が詳しく分かるように展示してありました。養蚕も盛んだったので興味あるかたには面白いです。係の方が説明してくれました。良かったです。

    織田氏の城下町の小幡のいろいろな情報があります。道路沿いには古い養蚕農家の建物や武家屋敷も残り観光地化もあまりされておらず、江戸から明治の雰囲気を味わえます。この建物もなかなか味がある。富岡製糸場からも近いので一緒に回るといいと思いますよ-。
  • 古くて小さな城下町

    係の方に非常に丁寧な説明をしていただきました。町に誇りを持たれていることが伝わってきました。織田家の庭園である楽山園を含め周辺の散策かおすすめです。
