This was my first time visiting the Showa Era Lifestyle Museum. It was really wonderful to be able to see aspects of a generation from the perspective of those from another country and culture. Though a bit before my time, I have a lot of fond memories of spending time with my grandparents and seeing many things similar to those in the museum. One that I found particularly nostalgic was this ice cream maker. It’s similar to the one that my grandmother had. We would spend many afternoons in the summer making ice cream. I remember the first time we tried, it ended up very salty because we didn’t make it properly. But after that, we always knew how to make lovely homemade ice cream!
