Miyakonojo History Museum - Permanent Exhibits

 

A walk around Miyakonojo

The volcanic ash that can be seen around the Miyakonojo basin, relics uncovered from archeological digs, records of the Meiji Restoration and the Satsuma Rebellion, as well as various other documents from the 'Miyakonojo Prefecture', are all displayed representing their various eras alongside easy-to-understand panels and models. From the Jōmon period (14,000–300 BCE) through to the present day, we introduce to you the history of Miyakonojo.

Ancient Tools

On the top floor of the museum, agricultural tools and household goods used in the ages past are on display. Here you can appreciate people's ingenuity in developing such things for their daily lives, during a time in which modern day machinery and electronics didn't exist.
