  • It is a museum showcasing the works of top righteous heroes of the angle. It is a hero from a regional 名族 top Yoshimitsu publicly and say, 付き纏います image of villains and supporting characters just by date Masamune, naoe kanetsugu, NHK Taiga drama, but in fact downfall top House heyday built the feudal. Seemed to be a person educated in rich, full of human touch the recent reevaluation is underway. This museum has many exhibits top Yoshimitsu public works. Helm of the hasedera Temple Castle battle figure and top y. Park will highlight. Have seemed to remain the gun marks, especially on the helmet was sniped in the hasedera Temple battle, battle history books as it was. In addition, also have been exhibited include a letter or poem, was a liberal who understand. Kajo Park Higashi OTE gate and go astray here I never will. Also, free, and also explained in the volunteers. Worth a visit if you like history because free exhibits are somewhat sad. I think top Yoshimitsu public image is changing.
