Murotsu Museum of Sea Port

Murotsu Museum of Sea Port

This museum used to be the property of the successful cargo-vessel wholesaler, Shimaya, during the Edo period. The original building itself was built by Hanshiro Shimaya (Miki), and further extended in 1873 during the Meiji period. It has two stories with a tiled gable roof, in the typical townhouse style of Murotsu. It has been designated a Tatsuno City Cultural Property due to its beautiful interior design, and is one of the few remaining large-sized valuable townhouses in the area, along with Uo-ya (the present-day Murotsu Museum of Folklore). It also introduces the history of Murotsu as a post town by the sea, focusing on four themes, and has a cafe and a shop inside the museum to add to the overall visitor experience.
