Takayama Shōwa-kan

Top choice 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 pre-Titan boom. Lose yourself among the delightful mishmash of endless objects, from movie posters to cars and everything in-between, lovingly presented in a series of themed rooms.
