This is a museum about Bengara.
Here used to be a Bengara factory, and it was renovated as a museum in 1986.

You can learn about the history of Bengara and a manufacturing process.

 

Fukiya is a birthplace of Bengara, it was first made in 1707. It was made from iron sulphate.

 

There are four steps to make Bengara from raw materials.

 

This is a room to bake iron sulphate.

Dried iron sulphate was baked in an oven at 700 degrees for 1-2 days.

Here is a room to wash baked iron sulphate.

After baking, it was put into the water to divide into two groups, coarse pieces and small pieces. Then, each of them was ground.

Next, the powder of iron sulphate was washed in the tub again and again
to remove acid.

At last, it was dried on wooden plates.

Those plates were called ‘Itanagashi’.

 

There are various tools to produce Bengara in this museum.

We enjoyed fascinating exhibition.

This school was established in 1873, then it was moved to Fukiya in 1899.

This school has a main building (built in 1909), East building and West building (built in 1900). They were designated as a cultural asset of Okayama.

It has been more than 100years since it was built. Actually, it’s the oldest wooden school in Japan.
It reminds visitors good old days
 

To my surprise, this school is still used now.
However, this school is due to close next March.

What a pity

 

The school is lit up after sunset to 9pm all year round.
