The world of art that you can go, see, and feel
File.27 Odawara City Street Corner Museum
Miyuki Inoue (Magcal editorial department)

Odawara has developed as a castle town, and since the Edo period, various people, things, and cultures have come and gone as important points of transportation. If you walk casually, a building that looks like a cultural property suddenly appears, and it is usually "open", so it is a town full of amazing things.
The "Machikado Museum" is a place where you can walk and experience historical assets that cannot fit in such a glass case. I took a leisurely walk with a guidebook published by Odawara City.

First, head to the Odawara Ekimae Umeboshi Museum, which is a 3-minute walk from the east exit of Odawara Station.
Originating from the restaurant "Chinryutei" that opened in Odawara City in 1871, the store was relocated in front of the station in line with the opening of Odawara Station, and "Chinriu" It is a specialty store of umeboshi, which has been renamed to "Riu) Main Store".

In the back of the store, there are pickled barrels used in the early Meiji era and cash registers from the 1900s. I feel the weight of history just by that.

The highlight is the umeboshi collection lined up in a row. The oldest one is the 5th year of Tenpo (1834), so I am surprised. I want to find "Birth Year Umeboshi" in the year I was born.

"Umeboshi quiz" is prepared as a petite event, so I tried it.
It is surprisingly difficult to guess the change in taste depending on how to make umeboshi and the number of years, by smelling or tasting. It seems that one person from the quiz participants will win a gift every month, so please try it.

Next is Ejima "Wagami Chaho".
The first generation started business in Odawara in the first year of Kanbun (1661). Initially, he was engaged in the salt industry at the beach. We began to handle Japanese paper in response to the demands of the times, and we went to a paper peddler from Suruga and Totomi to make special products.It was said that tea became the main product after bringing back tea.
The current building was rebuilt by the 15th generation Heihachi Ejima, a store that disappeared in the Great Kanto Earthquake. It is said that the "dashi-gita-zukuri" with overhanging eaves is a tradition of Odawara merchants.

The interior of the store has been renovated for earthquake resistance, but the museum area is spectacular. In addition to the deer skin happi coat made to commemorate the recovery from the earthquake and the completion of the building, Masuda Takashi's favorite tea pot, which is also famous as a tea master, is on display.

The main product is tea, but the Japanese crafts corner is lined with Japanese paper from all over the country, and it's fun just to look at it.

At noon, head to the Daruma restaurant "Goodwill and Taste Museum".
Founded in 1893 (Meiji 26). The store at that time collapsed due to the Great Kanto Earthquake, but after that, it was rebuilt by investing abundant funds obtained from the big catch of yellowtail. The Karahafu Irimaya-style building is designated as a nationally registered tangible cultural property.

The cafeteria on the 1st floor can be easily used without reservation, so try "appreciating" after eating. The building, which is hand-crafted by top-notch craftsmen using high-quality domestic cypress, pine and zelkova procured from a local lumber shop, is like a work of art from wall to ceiling.

Many people mention "horse mackerel sushi" as a specialty of Daruma restaurant, but we also recommend "tendon" which has been around since its establishment. Tentsuyu, which is not available outside the gate, is a long-established gem that has been added to preserve the taste.

One room, which is open to the public as the "Museum of the Town Corner," will be guided by calling out to the shop staff. It has a high-colored atmosphere that is a bit different from the atmosphere of the dining room, and it is said that it is still used as a reception room for meetings.

In addition to photographs of the legendary yellowtail landing landscape, the brazier used by the writer Chotaro Kawasaki is also on display.

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

Inside the store, the remnants of the spear and tools that were the spear painters of the Okubo domain are also on display.
The exterior of the store has been reborn as a building, but it seems that the store has a long history.

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

I would like to take a look at Matsuzakiya Pottery Store "Tosai Gallery" by connecting the vessels.
The exterior looks like an ordinary pottery shop, but since it is a long-established store in 1887, the "product inventory" collected by successive shop owners is not a hamper.

When you go up to the second floor, you will find a lot of ceramics and glassware from all over Japan. The "products" that the predecessors and predecessors purchased and left behind without selling are lined up in the sample for business negotiations. There are many brands that are difficult to obtain now, so it's just an eye candy.

This is a hot water drink with a lid of "Kutani brush fine print technique". Today, the characters are written tightly inside, making full use of advanced technology that is said to be difficult to reproduce.
By the way, it's just a "product", so most of them can be purchased if you wish. However, the price is ... Zero is lined up, so I didn't know how much it was at a glance ...

The glassware of Eizo Kagami, which is also in the collection of the National Museum of Modern Art.
I've seen a replica reproduced on a TV appraisal show, but I remember it was still a good price. This is the original. It must have been purchased as a collection using a professional information network and purchasing route. Odawara merchants are scary!

Finally, Kashiwagi Art and Foundry Research Institute "Sand"Zhang Gallery Narumonokan ". It is a workshop for 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 is said that about 100 craftsmen lived there. The number of foundry craftsmen has been steadily decreasing as the demand for pots and kettles has decreased, but this is creating new value by specializing in "sounding products".

"Sandhari" 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 acoustic tools since ancient times. The Kashiwagi Art and Foundry Research Institute manufactures and sells sounds that allow you to enjoy a more beautiful and long-sounding finish by devising the composition and shape.
For example, one of the Buddhist altars, "Orin". I've lived a life that has nothing to do with Buddhist altars, but I felt that it would be good to join hands with my ancestors every day if I was surrounded by such a beautiful sound.

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 play it, the tone is different one by one, so I'm wondering whether to choose by sound or by design.

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

Many other town corner museums are open to the public in Odawara. All of them are run by volunteers from each facility, so don't forget your etiquette when you visit.
