“Great historical exhibits”

Shinagawa History Museum
Ranked #37 of 162 things to do in Shinagawa
Attraction details
Reviewed 31 January 2014

This compact museum houses a fine collection of artifacts on the history of the Shinagawa area from the Jomon Period shell mounds through to the Edo Period, when Shinagawa was a post town on the Tokaido. There is also a display on the Shinagawa Aquaduct, which brought in fresh water during a time when the area’s economy was focused on vegetable production. Another major industry of the area was the production of nori (laver) and the museum has a display of the tools necessary for this endeavor. It also has a very fine diorama of the Shinagawa post town as the Tokaido passes through it.

The patterns on the floor of the museum’s lobby delineate the locations and shapes of the foundations of three of the several 8th century dwelling remains found on this site when it was excavated to build the museum in the 1980s. In the garden is the foundation of another of these dwellings, which can be more closely examined. Also in the garden is the reconstruction of a 1920s tea house that was originally built here. From time to time, tea ceremony is actually conducted here.

The friendly museum staff are happy to provide an English pamphlet that provides explanations of the exhibits.
