Matsudai Kyodo Shiryokan (Folk Museum)/まつだい郷土資料館

Adjacent to Nobutai is Matsudai Kyodo Shiryokan (Folk Museum).  Photos only, except to say that the second photo from the last shows a furin (wind chime).

Very interesting museum. These sliding doors with animal paintings were very beautiful. One of the looms seems to be for weaving mats. I would like to see this in reality (kind of interested in weaving). And yes, a fuurin. You had quite some very nice trips the last days, thanks a lot for sharing.

Very interesting. Some items are really beautiful. I wish I had such a very dark wooden floor in my flat (I have light wood).

Kiki: The first one? I suppose it's for making mushiro むしろ.

The furin photo was meant for you (laugh).
I enjoyed the high-pitched sound in that environment, but in a residential area, that sound can be quite annoying!

Sissi: Yes, the dark floor goes very well with the dark beams and pillars.

I love the bathroom and kitchen! Is it what old houses used to look like?

The fuurin tingling sound sometimes is really high pitched but the ceramic fuurin sound a little bit deeper more some sort of clang clang instead of ting ting. And the small metal bells sound much louder than the glass bells. Without wind there is no sound from the chimes at all and you also get used to it rather quickly. The neigbor kids are a noisy bunch, much louder than my small chimes. And the neigbors could complain about our pond too - the small waterfall is quite noisy but they never did (laugh).

The dark wooden floor is really nice, would like to have that too. We have light wood and lime stone floors only. Whenever the light wood floors have to be removed I will order dark (swamp)oak.

YSC: The museum was a farm house built about 70 years ago. I'm not sure whether tiled bathroom and kitchen were popular then. I guess that wooden bathtubs were more popular then.

Kiki: This museum (former farm house) was made of keyaki
I'm not sure about the floor, though.
