Takayama Shōwa-kan

Museum in Takayama

This nostalgia bonanza from the Shōwa period (1926–89) concentrates on the years between 1955 and 1965, a time of great optimism between Japan's postwar malaise and the economic boom of the 1980s. Lose yourself among the delightful mishmash of objects, from movie posters to cars and everything in between, lovingly presented in a series of themed rooms.
