“Electrical Waves and Heating Appliances” Exhibition
The exhibition in the topic exhibition corner in the lobby on the 2nd floor has been changed. The theme of this time is “Electrification Waves and Heating Appliances”, and we are exhibiting a collection of heating appliances around 1955, when the waves of electrification spread rapidly in our daily lives. The photo shows a transitional electric appliance from traditional folk implements to electric appliances, in which a heater that used to use charcoal as a heat source has electrified the heat source while maintaining the basic structure and form. The left is a comparative exhibition of kotatsu and electric kotatsu, and the right is a comparative exhibition of brazier and electric brazier. _Ito

Heisei is over, and a new era “Reiwa” has arrived.
Next year, the 32nd Olympic Games will be held in Tokyo in the 2nd year of Reiwa (2020), and the 2025 Japan World Exposition will be held in Osaka in the 7th year of Reiwa (2025). The times have changed and the Showa era has become farther away, but the big events of the Olympic Games and the Expo, which once thrilled and enthused many people in the Showa era, were held again in the same place during the Reiwa era. I’m trying.
At this exhibition, materials related to the Tokyo Olympics and the Osaka Expo will be collected to see how the enthusiasm was once, and in the Showa period, especially after the war, many people were fascinated by things that caused social phenomena and trends. I will take up things and so on.
Let’s look back on the Showa era through the things that attracted and engrossed many people, such as the start of TV broadcasting, “three sacred treasures”, private car boom, space development, fashion trends, and panda fever. _Ito
