  • Permanent exhibition's heart early Meiji period from the end of Edo period. General exhibition but to be honest, things is perfect. In this regard as nagadohi, though no big star to the saga clan, is selling technology to Hisashige Tanaka (Hisashige) think that exhibition at the same time. There is also famous Armstrong gun spot is defunct because of wartime metal collection, scarce resources, such as circumstances. (Model is exhibited at the entrance to include exhibits of shells, but does not provide too much detail is). Ryuzoji takanobu is hardly less attractive person, come fight and five people as well as the attractions include ryuzoji shitenhouji King or ryuzoji House. Avoid touching about ryuzoji clan doesn't mean lots of people understand, but so (whole ryuzoji House's consent, only inherited), saga (SATO, y.) of the warring States period to have an interest in also actively exhibited by good, even though I think.
