We were looking forward to this museum, thinking it would provide insight into the history of forestry in Aomori and information on forestry today. The building is in need of attention, with peeling paint and some of the exhibition rooms not even lit. Some exhibits provide middle school information on the biology of trees, others are full of examples of what wood can be used for. There's a room about a champion skier, and a room that looks like some meetings were held there. It was hard to make sense of it because everything was in Japanese at a level higher than my A level studies could help me with. Someone needs to decide what the Museum is about and then spend some money modernising it. The building is lovely, and it could be really interesting, but at the moment it just feels tired.
