File.27 Odawara City Corner Museum
Miyuki Inoue (Magcal Editorial Department)

Odawara, which has developed as a castle town, has been a hub of transportation since the Edo era, where various people, things, and cultures have come and went. When you walk casually, a building that looks like a cultural property suddenly appears, and even when it is “normally open”, it is a town full of amazing things.
The "Machikado Museum" is a place where you can walk and experience the historical assets that cannot fit in such a glass case. I took a leisurely walk with the guidebook issued by Odawara City in my hand.

First, go to the Chinriu main store "Odawara station square Umeboshi Museum", a 3-minute walk from the east exit of Odawara station.
It originated from the Japanese restaurant "Chinryutei" that opened in Odawara city in 1871, and then moved to a new store in front of the station in line with the opening of Odawara station. It is a specialty store of umeboshi, renamed "Riu) Main Store".

At the back of the store, there are pickled barrels used in the early Meiji era and 1900s registers. It feels the weight of history.

The highlight is the Umeboshi collection lined up in a row. I am surprised that the oldest one is Tenpo 5 (1834). I want to find the "Birthyear Umeboshi" that I was born in.

The "Umeboshi Quiz" is prepared as a small event, so I tried it.
I try to change the taste of umeboshi depending on how it is made and how many years it is, by smelling it and tasting it, but this is surprisingly difficult. Every month, one quiz participant will give you a present, so give it a try.

Next is Ejima's “Wagami Chaho”.
The first generation started business in Odawara in the first year of Kanbun (1661). Initially, it was said that he was engaged in salt production at the beach. We started to handle washi in response to the demands of the times, and made special products from Suruga and Omi, which we went to for paper peddling. Tea came to be the main product after taking home tea.
The current building is the one that was reconstructed by Heihachi Ejima, who was in the fifteenth generation, after the store that had disappeared after the Great Kanto Earthquake. It is said that the Oshiwara merchandising tradition is "dashigera-zukuri," where the eaves overhang.

The interior of the store has been refurbished for earthquake resistance, but the museum area is spectacular. In addition to the deer skin coat created in commemoration of the reconstruction from the earthquake and the completion of the building, the tea pots used by Masuo Masuda, a famous tea master, are on display.

The main merchandise is tea, but the Wako corner is lined with Japanese paper from all over the country, so just looking at it is fun.

At lunchtime, head to the Daruma restaurant "Goodwill and Taste Museum".
The company was founded in 1893. The store at that time collapsed due to the Great Kanto Earthquake, but it seems that after that, it was rebuilt with the abundant funds gained from the big catch of yellowtail. The Karafufu Iriya building is designated as a nationally registered tangible cultural property.

The cafeteria on the 1st floor is easy to use without reservation, so you can "watch" it when you have a meal. The high-quality Japanese cypress, pine trees, and zelkova that are procured from a local lumber shop are generously used to create the building, which is hand-crafted by top-notch artisans.

Many people cite "mackerel sushi" as a specialty of a Daruma restaurant, but we also recommend "tendon," which has been around since its establishment. The undisclosed Tentsuyu is a long-established gem that has been added to protect the taste.

One room, which is open to the public as the "Machikado Museum", would have been calling out to the shops and guiding them. It has a high-quality atmosphere that is slightly different from the atmosphere of the dining room, and it seems that it is still used as a reception room for meetings.

In addition to photographs of the legendary yellowtail landing scene, the brazier used by the author, Chotaro Kawasaki, is also displayed.

You can experience the Odawara lacquer ware that emerged in the Muromachi period at the Ishikawa lacquer ware "Lacquer and Utsuwa Gallery".
The Ishikawa family, who had been working as a spear painter for the Odawara domain since the Edo period, was a workshop founded in 1887. We are particular about domestic timber and consistently handle from woodworking to painting.

Inside the store, there are also relics of the remnants of the Okubo clan's spear painter and tools.
The exterior of the store has been transformed into a building, but it seems that the store has a long history.

Lacquerware is only natural, and it can be damaged if used. In that respect, Odawara lacquer ware can be repainted as many times as you like, so please consult the store for important maintenance.

Matsuzakiya pottery shop in the vessel ties "ToAya our Gallery" also want to peek.
The appearance looks like a normal pottery shop, but the "inventory" collected by successive store owners is not a hamper because it is a long-established store in 1887.

When you go up to the second floor, you can see ceramics and glassware from all over Japan. Lined up in the sample for business negotiations are the "products" that the previous and previous generations purchased and left without selling. There are a lot of brands that are difficult to obtain nowadays, so it's an eye candy.

This is a cup with a lid of "Kutani brush fine print technique". Today, we make full use of advanced technology, which is said to be difficult to reproduce, and the letters are written closely inside.
By the way, most of the products are "commodities", so you can buy most of them if you wish. However, the price is ... There are a lot of zeros, so I didn't know how much it cost ...

A glassware from Sanzo Kakami, also held in the National Museum of Modern Art.
I've seen replicas reproduced on a TV appraisal program, but I remember it was a good price. This is the original. It must have been purchased as a collection using a professional information network and purchasing routes. The Odawara merchant is afraid!

The last is Kashiwagi Art Foundry Research Institute "SandZhang Gallery Narumonokan ". It is a workshop of casting products that inherits the tradition from the Muromachi period.
During the Edo period, Odawara was the largest casting base in the Kanto area, and it was said that 100 craftsmen lived there. As the demand for pots and kettles decreased, the number of foundry workers continued to decline, but this is creating new value by specializing in "Ningoku".

The name "Sunabari" in the museum name is a type of bronze, which is an alloy of copper and tin that has been used as a material for audio equipment since ancient times. The Kashiwagi Art Foundry Research Institute manufactures and sells sound products that can be enjoyed with a beautiful and long-lasting lingering sound by devising the composition and shape.
For example, "Orin" is one of the Buddhist items. Until now, I have lived a life without much relations with Buddhist altars, but I felt that it would be nice to work with my ancestors every day if it would be so beautiful.

At the workshop, you can purchase a combination of your favorite wind chimes and strips, so it is also recommended as a souvenir. When I actually played it, the timbres were different one by one, so I was wondering whether to select it by sound or design.

In the corner of Odawara, stone pillars stating the old town name and its origin stand here and there. I want to take a leisurely walk through the history of the town while thinking about the bustle of the past.

Many other corner museums are open to the public in Odawara. All the facilities are run by volunteers, so don't forget the manners when visiting.
