Dagashiya no Yume Museum

Museum / Science Museum
"This museum operates out of an old storehouse redolent with the atmosphere of Japan's bygone Showa period. A ""dagashiya"" is a type of small, cheap candy/toy shop found all over Japan, and this museum's standing exhibition of some 50 thousand items primarily consists of toys sold at dagashiya in the late 1950s and early 60s. For those who lived it, the museum will bring waves of nostalgia, while for those who didn't, the items on display will seem novel and unique. Both types of people will find time going by in an instant as they view the various retro exhibits. In addition, the museum offers a free, multilingual audio guide you can access from your smartphone. At this rare facility, you can feel like you've gone back in time to Showa Japan."

    昔のアイドルらしいブロマイドやレコードポスターがところ狭しと展示されています。すごいボリュームです。
