Hakatamachiya Furusatokan Museum


Take a glimpse at how the average Hakatan during the Meiji (1868-1912), Taisho (1912-1926), and Showa (1926-1989) Eras lived at the Hakatamachiya Furusatokan Museum! Like the structures in Kyoto, the frontage of the museum is narrow and the building itself is long. There is a main building with a courtyard, a guest house and a warehouse. A path called a “tori niwa” runs from the front to the back of the interior of the museum, and each of the buildings comprising the museum line up closely in a perfect row. There are exhibits as well as live demonstrations and instructional lessons by traditional Hakatan artists of how folk crafts are made! The museum was built in the director’s hopes that people would have a fun time experiencing and becoming familiar with Hakata’s history and culture.
