Overview
More
Yufuin Showa-kan presents a smorgasbord of reproductions of Showa period streetscapes that are sure to rouse feelings of nostalgia. The nostalgic cars at the entrance are just one example. Inside, barber shops, camera stores, electronic goods, doctor’s clinics, tiny bars, post offices, schools, public bath houses, cheap candy stores, and domestic interiors, such as the kitchens and lounge rooms of the time, are all waiting to take you on a time slip to the Showa 30s

Yufuin Showakan is a museum, which reconstructs shops of Showa Time (1926-1989). I myself was born in Showa, and so the displays recalled me good old days. For foreigners, who are interested in Japanese culture,it is also very informative .
