Azai Folklore Museum


A Unique Museum Exploring Sengoku History and Local Culture

Located within the Azai Culture and Sports Park, this unique museum comprises four facilities: the Local Learning Hall, Itohime’s Hall, the Blacksmith Workshop Hall, and the Nanarin Hall, showcasing a variety of exhibits in each facility.

The Local Learning Hall features materials related to the feudal lords of the Asai Clan during the Sengoku Warring States era of Japan, including models of Odani Castle, while Itohime’s Hall presents the history of sericulture, a longstanding tradition in the region. The Blacksmith Workshop Hall delves into the history of blacksmithing, and the Nanarin Hall, a reconstruction of a late Edo-period residence, offers a tangible glimpse into the history, culture, and industrial evolution of the Azai area of Nagahama.

This facility is covered by the Nagahama Excursion Passport >>
