Kunitachi City Cultural Museum

Filed under: Tokyo places, Western Tokyo — myyearinjapan @ 1:21 pm

A couple weeks ago, I went on a field trip around the town my university is in. We went to a cultural museum and the oldest house in the town.

The cultural museum followed the history of the city from the jomon period (which went from 14,000 B.C.E. to 400 B.C.E.) to modern times. They had a surprising amount of jomon era artifacts, which was pretty neat. It was also a pretty nice building.

The building had lots of windows. It made it feel very open.
