源氏物語を読んだことがなく知識がなかったものの、管内で流す２種類のビデオ鑑賞でストーリが把握できる。 ミュージアム自体はそれほど大きくないが、宇治にいったら是非、宇治上神社とともに訪れると、源氏物語にとても興味がわいてくると思う。施設の脇には、カフェもあるので、疲れたひとは休めるのもありがたい。In a shed in a tube, but had no knowledge without having read the tale of Genji, two videos that knows the story.

Is located beside the hotel, café, I am tired of rest!show original

Nobu WatIt is a Museum of Uji city which opened in 1998. Uji is the last stage of the tale of Genji, was actually in the Villa area of the Heian nobility. And many exhibitions, but variety is ingenious and is recommended. Mr. source of light was staying current shosei-en Garden (enclave of Higashi honganji Temple) and was realized paradise? (Actually source Kawahara Academy) in models of the rokujo, full length (this is easy to understand),? The ox (large), and other exhibits during the Heian period costumes and furnishings. You can also see the movie. When I visited there were joint exhibitions and Uji City Museum of history. I think so interesting special exhibitions are also named after Kyoto, just like come on a regular basis. In the Museum collection, such as a valuable manuscript of the tale of Genji and storage made.show original
チェリーシェリーExhibits are few. Ox per exhibition is gorgeous but it's just. Or seen a movie wasn't interesting to me. Good if you go once, again?.show original
Jube TokuSay anything close to the cinema. Difficult to understand the the tale of Genji at the exhibit. So film is well done, but tourists are seen dozens of minutes time isn't the one or two pieces of the story look uninteresting.show original
