Kurashiki Bikan Area vol.2

Hi!

Now, I’m on the way to a unique museum…

 

 

Here is ‘Nihon Kyodo Gangukan (Japan Toy Museum) .

This museum is located near Kurashiki Kan.

It exhibits Japanese traditional toys which were collected from all parts of Japan
What’s more, some of them were made in Edo period!  What a surprise

 

We found that the entrance ticket has a trick…  It’s Origami!!

Fold the paper along the dotted line, then you can make a ‘Kabuto (a helmet)!

It’s so sweet

 

This museum is full of atmosphere.

It astonished us that the museum has numerous toys inside
Well, you must feel in the same way, since this museum exhibits more than 5000 toys!

 

These are dolls from all over Japan.

Some of them imitates Samurai, Kabuki actor or some characters in the legend.
I'm really  fond of them as they have vivid colours and expressive faces


This is Hina doll for girls.

In Japan, people desplay Hina dolls on March 3 to pray for good health and happiness for their daughters.

This celebration is called
Hina festival, and it is said that the celebration started in Heian period.
The appearances of the dolls are changing with the times.

This one is quite old, but it still remains its elegance and beauty.
Look at their Kimono and other stuff
they are so real! ...Fabulous
 


These are shells for ‘Kai awase’, it’s a kind of the game which is said to date from Heian period.

As you can see, each shell has different picture in it

Uhhh, how to play

Originally, the players should have been devided into 2 teams.

Then, each team used to show their shells to other team, and they judged which one

was more beautiful

Or, they would write a 'Uta (Japanese poetry)' with the image of the picture,and they compared the quality of their poetry.

We felt hungry, so we visited a local sweet shop 'Kikkodo'.

This shop has a special local sweet 'Murasuzume'.
It looks like a crepe, and it has sweet bean paste inside.

One of the most exciting thing Ive found in this shop is... you can try making this sweet on your own It costs 500 yen for 3 pieces.

 

Then, give it a go

Well done

You should eat it as soon as you made! So tasty

I’d like to try ‘Jumbo Murasuzume (1000yen) next time, it’s seven times as large as normal size!
