Back to the Retro Japan

In session

Exhibition period: November 28 (Sat), 2020 – March 7 (Sun), 2021

This year, just like last year, antique tools dating back 150–40 years are collected and exhibited. They are exhibited in 2 categories that are connected to the life of children; “Town” and “Home.” A display scene is reproduced that looks like a movie set, which displays the tools and allow visitors to learn, while having fun, how they were used in everyday life back then. It also displays similar present-day tools along with the old, to show the transitions and transformations that have been made to them.
This is a kids-and-family-friendly exhibition and some of the tools may bring back memories for adult visitors.

About volunteer guide program

Although this program has been received well over the years, we will not operate the program this fiscal year to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections.

About “experience corner”

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections, we will not operate the programs of “experience corner (try-outs of tools and old toys, toy-making workshops, etc.)” For school organizations, however, a simplified version of the tool try-out is available, with COVID-19 protective measures.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

About entrance restrictions during school organization visits

We currently limit the number of visitors in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections.
Therefore, due to the limited number of visitors, the exhibits will not be available for general visitors during the hours of school organization visits. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
A reservation status calendar for school organization visits is available on the “Announcements” page. Please make sure to check the calendar before your visit.
* Please note that the reservation status may change at the last minute. We appreciate your understanding.
* The reservation status calendar will be updated regularly.
