Best to visit before exploring Akitakata
Jun 2018 • Family
The museum is a must-see to learn the history of the Akitakata area before seeing the sites. It was raining so hard the day we visited that we did not get the chance to climb Kohriyama to see the castle ruins. The museum has a diorama of the castle mountain to give you an idea what the town and castle could have looked like back in the 16th century. Artifacts from prehistoric times to the mid 20th century give you a panoramic view of life in rural Hiroshima over the ages.
One of the exciting recent discoveries showcased in the museum was an ancient tomb from the Kofun Period (4th to 6th centuries AD). Artifacts from the tomb show that the area was far more important than previously estimated.
The museum is not too large, so you can see all the displays in an hour or so. Going there first will help you to make better sense of the area.
