  • Under the title of "youth of the schoolgirls' whatever pictures I thought! But the important thoughts of the Museum you can see it was! You cannot observe only in free trade because we didn't have time, but next time make sure all want to tour it? r

  • Showa is central since the early Middle age. Photo and model, but was actually used there are many. I had, I take it for granted sometimes went against the war after the war impoverished everyone endured. Shigeko involuntarily and blessed thing nor food, now consists of people of this age. I'm want to visit Yasukuni Shrine and fit.

  • I have a lot of material on the Showa Museum. War relationship is key. Not doing the lending library on the fourth floor, but the amount of books. Wartime wrecks magazine it was amazing. There is also video corner.

  • Very nice museum. A bit heavy at times due to the subject matter, but a very realistic snapshot of Japanese life around 1940-1950
  • Focuses on the life of Japanese people before, during and after world war II. Didn't go into any detail about the war itself. Interesting descriptions in English and there was also a photo exhibition on level 2 when we visited which appeared to have photos from the collection of an American family after the war. Haven't been to other war museums in Japan to contrast
  • There can be very interesting free techie as well, so if you are interested in the post war period of Japan, but sure to check the program.
  • Very complete exhibition of the everyday life of average Japanese family during and after the WWII. Don't forget to get the audio guide in English!
  • Great museum on Japanese history. There are lots of kids in school groups but this is a great place for adults also. Architecture is very interesting in the outer lobby. And next-door is a huge lotus pond
