  • 3.11 Memorial visited Morioka. Mori memorial ceremony was done in front of a funny History Museum. It was held elsewhere, even. Sakurayama shrine could do. Pray for the victims.

  • Instead of when you come to Morioka, the nanbu clan came from the Oku-no-hosomichi by boat in Hachinohe arrived from the South, like Morioka. History Museum had no such description. Southern Han and Nambu cast iron work are inseparable and I had only low-quality like souvenir Nambu cast iron work here. History Museum building is very good, have a budget gem of Nambu cast iron work that some exhibits show wanted. I've since been to Morioka; I excitedly have had show exhibit exhibit here is rather Nambu cast iron work better than what the rich history and culture of Morioka. Perspective shift said that is a pity that the poverty of ideas, not help. It was just one point Morioka said gem and railway map of the relationship between Meiji 29 issue. I saw for the first time.

  • Surprisingly good! The first floor is free. There is a cafe, gift shop and some displays where you can learn about the festivals of Morioka. The second floor costs 300 yen and displays the history of Morioka and a special exhibit. Definitely recommend, even if you just watch the videos of life in Morioka in 1923. There isn't a lot of English signage, but I was surprised by the quality of the displays. You can also see a pocket watch and pistol given to the Nambu clan by Queen Victoria for helping some sailors.
  • Now that this place finish it's restoration it's a much see & visit while in Morioka. And it's within the Morioka-Jo grounds
  • I stopped by while exploring the ruins of Morioka. Adults 300 yen per person admission fee is required on the second floor, is on the first floor can be visited free of charge. In the tourism zone on the ground floor, largely permanent exhibits for the Festival of Morioka. Huge Morioka floats and horse u of the exhibition was very well done. You can learn from the Edo era to the modern Morioka in the historical zone of Morioka Festival found good favor on the second floor. Impressed here but the charm each exhibit is. Room has black tones and more attractive exhibits, exhibit in case a transparent and good hitting spotlight was foiled (^ ^) cool gusoku, bow, halberd (naginata) was often displayed. Conversely, modern exhibition felt a bit sorry, terribly Edo exhibition (^ ^;) You can buy souvenirs at shops located in favor on the first floor was really studying about the history and culture of Morioka, on a tour of the first floor and second floor.
