Takayama Showa Museum - Review

The beginning of 1990’s marked the transformation of the Showa Period and with that even marked the change of the politics, lifestyles, fashion and administration of Japan. Japanese culture really took a backseat to embrace the western world. To recreate the time gone by in all its beauty and daily life-like feel, the Takayama Showa Museum keep the 1950’s alive and breathing even today. Walk through a colorful street with vintage vehicles parked outside the shops, toys that are showcased on the stores, nameplates of shops, signs, posters and photos that spin back the time turner.

Takayama Showa Museum, Takayama Reviews

  • This place was so much fun and full of surprises! Be sure not to miss the upstairs section, where you can play vintage video games and dress up in kimonos near a staged Japanese home. There is also a movie theater rolling vintage Japanese films in one of the rooms off the main halls, a room where you can learn about and play pachinko, and an old juke box that still works. We thought we'd pass through the museum quickly but stayed for quite a long time. Perfect for rainy days.

  • Very interesting, it showed the appliances, and way of living that my mother, and grandmother lived, and included stuff my father grew up with as well.

  • The lady in charge is so nice, even she doesn't speak english, she tries to explain anything to you. It is a small museum, easy to see, we got entertained by an old console we used to play Mario Kart with it.

  • Fantastic day at Museum, retro items from he 1960,s and we'll displayed. Needs a cafe or place to rest and could expand into next door shop. Great value but.

  • A dive in the past, we should have this kind of museums for each decade, in each country! Definitely worth the trip.
