Uchigawa Exhibition of Things

Have you ever wanted to see the inside and the back of an exhibit that you can’t see in a regular exhibition?

What’s inside the electrical appliances? What’s in that box? What was in that drawer?

To satisfy such curiosity, this time we will look inside things that cannot be seen in ordinary exhibitions.
If you look at the inside, back, and contents of things, you can see how they are used, their roles, their mechanisms, and their ingenuity.

At this exhibition, by turning the viewpoint of appreciation inward, you can take a closer look at the world that spreads inside various things, and enjoy fresh discoveries and surprises that cannot be obtained just by looking at the outside.

Selected as the winner of the 1st “Japanese Association of Museums Award”

Kitanagoya City Museum of History and Folklore “Showa Era Lifestyle Museum”

This award is “a system that allows up to two museums per year to be honored for their significant contributions to the promotion of Japanese museums and their outstanding achievements that serve as a model for other museums” (*).
 The Chihiro Art Museum (Azumino, Tokyo) and the Kitanagoya City Museum of History and Folklore have been selected as the first award winners. The awards are scheduled to be presented at the National Museum Convention in autumn.
 The reason for the award was as follows: “As a local public museum, the museum was quick to engage in projects using the reminiscence method for local elderly people, utilizing its collection of items used in daily life during the Showa era. In addition, the museum fulfills its role as an engine for passing on local culture from one person to another, and functions as a place for intergenerational exchange in the community, with a long-term vision and plan for the continuation of the project. (*).

We would like to create new approaches in the “new daily life” by seeking new ways to coexist with the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, especially by reminiscence method and being a communication-oriented museum.

"Electrical Waves and Heating Appliances" Exhibition

“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

Information for the next exhibition

Special exhibition “News Scraps That Make Your Heart Dance Showa NEWS Scrap”

Special exhibition “News Scraps That Make Your Heart Dance, Showa NEWS, Scrap-Events and event files of the Showa era when everyone was enthusiastic and crazy”
Exhibition period: July 6th (Sat) -September 16th (Monday / holiday)

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
