Tanegashima Development Centre – Pistol Museum

Museum in Tanegashima

Though one focus is on the history of guns in Tanegashima, with an excellent collection of antique firearms, this is actually a cultural and natural-history museum. The combined ticket includes admission to an interesting samurai house about 50m away. Make as straight a beeline as possible uphill from the port; the building resembles the stern of an old galleon.
