Tsuchiyama History and Folk Museum
[Highway evolution as a window on Tsuchiyama history and culture]
Lying at the foot of the Suzuka Pass, Tsuchiyama flourished for centuries as the main town along the highway linking the Omi and Ise regions. The museum takes the highway as a window onto the history and culture of Tsuchiyama. The visitor proceeds through both space and history to track the story of the town that flourished against the backdrop of the highway. The museum displays old shop signs for specialty products of the Tsuchiyama post town including tea, Oroku combs and Kanigasaka candy, as well as antique items, such as tea urns, in a recreation of the atmosphere of the old highway.
