We would like to introduce some appealing areas, food, and much more in Akita Prefecture. We’ll be posting new information regularly, so be sure to check in!
For our first post, we’ve chosen to introduce the “Chokaisan Wooden Toy Museum” in Yurihonjo City.
The museum building itself is an important cultural property, known as an Ayukawa Abolished Elementary School, which was originally built in 1954. Now it is an international exchange center and museum. There are two areas in the museum, one which is free and one which requires a small fee. These pictures were taken in the free area. You can enjoy the old-school Japanese atmosphere and take advantage of many photogenic spots.
In the paid area, there are one hundred wooden toys available for kids to play with and a wooden acorn pit.
You should definitely visit the “Chokaisan Wooden Toy Museum” with your friends and family when you come to Akita!
