'Tora-san Memorial Building' remains Showa period of time, Tokyo
Here at 'Tora-san Memorial', the scene of the humanity comedy movie has been fully reproduced.
The movie is called 'Otoko-wa-tsuraiyo', which was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest-lasting movie.
There is a movie set in a building, including "Kurumaya" and real materials and models used in movies.
Once you step inside, time flies back to Showa period of time and Tora-san's world.
There is a Showa-style kitchen and living room that can hardly be seen nowadays.
Even if you were not seen Tora-san's movie, you will still be able to enjoy the nostalgic taste of local life in old days.
You can feel the taste of Japanese tradition of 'WA', such as 'Shoji', sliding paper door, and 'tatami', which modern Japanese houses do not have.
With high-quality miniature, there is also an area where streets of Showa has reproduced.
You will see Japan from the post-war tempestuous period up to high economic growth period at site.
