Dating from the early Showa period in the 1920s, this Japanese building shows signs of influence from Western architecture. Inside, the spacious exhibition hall seems to stretch on endlessly, whetting one’s appetite for its treasures. The displays have a distinctive Showa flavor—a glimpse into an interesting era of Japan’s development. Right after opening or before closing, there are fewer people, so you can have a relaxing tour. At those times, it’s quiet enough to hear the wooden floor creak under your feet, which adds to the retro ambience.
