Partners Information: The retro streets of the 1950s have been reconstructed at Takayama Showa Museum (Takayama Showakan). The Showa Period (1926-89) was a time of great change in Japan, seeing shifts from militarism to democracy, agriculture to industry and so on.

This time also saw westernisation in Japan, from clothing and food to architecture. Visit the Takayama Showakan and see the lifestyle and culture beautifully recreated.

Don’t miss the penny candy store at the entrance selling everyone’s favourite treats from time gone by.

At Takayama Showakan you can feel the good old days of Japan by seeing their display of nostalgic artefacts.
