Showa Museum recommendation

Asked by Sherilyn Siy · 1 year ago

So my daughter is super interested in the Showa Period and she would like to go to a Showa museum. I'm confused as there seems to be a lot of Showa museums. We're in Saitama and can go to Tokyo. Which Showa Museums do you recommend (and why) and how much  are the fees? Thanks!

Hi Sherilyn,

I recommend Showa no Kurashi Museum (Museum of Life in the Showa Era)  it is located at 2-26 Minamikugahara, Ota City, Tokyo 146-0084.

Tokyo may seem like all steel and skyscrapers, but a visit to the Museum of Life in the Showa Era will make you feel as if you’ve slipped back in time about 60 years.

Admission: 500 yen (adult), 300 yen (elementary to junior high school age)

Opening Hours: 10:00–17:00 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Holidays)


The Museum of the Showa Period can be reached in a short walk from either Shimomaruko Station on the Tamagawa Line or Kugahara Station on the Ikegami Line. There are several small signs pointing the way to the museum, though it’s advisable to use Google Maps to assist.
