Akita Akarenga Kyodokan - Review

This beautiful red brick building of Renaissance exteriors and Baroque interiors used to be the headquarters of the old Akita bank. Most people come to visit it for the gigantic metal safe doors leftover from its banking days. Today, however, it is a museum of folk art, dedicated to two people. The first is KatsuhiraTokushi, a woodblock artist who used to carve scenes of Akita life. And the second is SekiyaShiro, a genius 'hagiawase' metalworker whose memorial is on the second floor, along with exhibits of his masterpieces and tools. Prominent rooms of a regal nature worth checking out are the President room and the the VIP room.

Akita Akarenga Kyodokan, Akita Reviews

  • Good place to spend an hour or so out of the cold of Akita city.

  • Beautiful structure

  • old bank museum

  • 国の重要文化財に指定されており、秋田銀行の旧本店だったそうです。レンガ造りの建物で、外観はもちろん、内部も中々の雰囲気を出してくれています。俗に言う、古き良き~ってやつですね。古い建造物が好きな方は1度訪れる価値はあるでしょう。しかし、よほど興味がない限り、赤れんが郷土館を目的に秋田まで行くにはちょっと弱い気がしますね。秋田には色々と魅力的な物があるので、そちらのついでに少し時間を割く程度がベストな気がします。

  • 入場料はねぶり流し館とセットで250円。秋田銀行本店であったレンガ造りの建物。特に外観、ホールは見応えあります。秋田出身の工芸家関谷四郎と版画家の勝平得之常設展示あります。版画家の勝平の作品は温かみがありました。
