  • More broadly, as well as the Mito kairakuen, and then go to the Tokugawa Museum are lost, but I wanted to know about Ibaraki, so visit here. As a result, was right. Becoming a permanent exhibition on the second floor, is from the Tomb to the present description. Audio guide, very helpful on the second floor. Just a room in half so far advanced from rent a little comfort is. Exhibition is on the first floor, was doing the "Hitotsubashi Tokugawa House 200 years". That was on display even after taiseihoukan interesting. Also, is the first exhibition of the sword was the description by degree of difficulty, www.upsold.com was a novelty. Sword hard and honest look at the times I do not know, but difficulty ★ "in pugyuru was and feel" and I want you to like this show more and more descriptive to children and beginners. Had Mito tour 1 day free ticket discount is effective the permanent collection and special exhibition match at 480 yen. Lockers are provided free of charge.
