  • Is the facility you can know life in Showa period Japan. And are lined with exhibits is the first glimpse into the life of the Showa era. (Flow well in some places. I was somehow impressive voice of the aunt of a fruit shop. ) Also, a diorama of ships and trains. Sit at the time of the engineer of the ship using a microphone experience like a bedroom pictures, too. It was the impression when I went people not very many, I'm lonely. From Aomori station is within walking distance from the edge is extremely advantageous location away feels like I guess.
