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

  • 日本銀行、秋田銀行と利用された赤レンガの施設で現在は展示施設になっています。銀行時代の面影が随所にのこり、金庫室や頭取室は当時のまま残されています。外見は他ではあまり見ないようなレンガのデザインで、日本では珍しくイギリスの建築手法が取り入れられているそうです。 名前は忘れてしまいましたが、人間国宝である金属加工職人の方の資料館を兼ねているのでそちらの作品も見ることができます。 秋田市内はあまり見るところが無いですが、駅からも近く気軽に立ち寄れるスポットなので行く価値はありそうです。駅からバスも出ています。

  • 大町にあり、千秋公園、県立美術館も近くになります。駐車スペースもあります。旧秋田銀行の本店だった建物で、国の重要文化財に指定されていて、建物を見るだけでも行ったかいがあります。郷土玩具を展示した「勝平得之記念館」や鍛金家の「関谷四郎記念室」もあり、見学時間は多めにとってください。私は、秋田市で一番の見所だと思います。
