There are quite a few strange museums in Kyoto. There may be some misunderstandings when it comes to strange things, A museum that makes me wonder, "Even though it's widespread in the world, can it be a museum by collecting such things?" One of them is the "Museum of the Box". You can't read it first, right? In modern kanji, it is "Bento Box Museum". I was surprised when I went there, and the quality was a little nice.
The location is a 1-minute walk from "Kiyomizu-Gojo Station". It is located on the 2nd floor of the long-established "Hanbei Fu" main store in front of Gojo Ohashi, which is famous for Benkei and Ushiwakamaru. Ryo Tanahashi, who designed the Kyoto Tower, is also involved in the main building.
Kyoto has the image of a townhouse, but it's also nice to see the modern Western-style buildings of the Meiji and Taisho eras. The wall that leaves the wild texture of the rock is cool.
The first floor is also a display of "Hanbeifu" products and a souvenir shop.
It's a famous store in Kyoto, so you can buy raw fu and grilled fu. In a sense, the first floor is the Fu Museum. Fu is healthy as a souvenir from Kyoto, and I think it's pretty good.
Even so, it's a luxurious structure. I think this space is a resting place. The carpet is probably Nabeshima Dandori, a Japanese luxury carpet.
Now, let's go upstairs. There are no people at all. As expected, the lunch box seems to be a maniac genre.
Well, after all the old lunch box, gorgeous. The common people wrap it around bamboo leaves, aren't they?
The decoration is gorgeous, but the work is also gorgeous. It opens like this, and the shelves are lined up in it, which is very complicated. As expected, Japanese lol. How many side dishes will fit in?
This is a bamboo basket lunch box. Somehow a little commoner. However, I wonder if my husband used it. There is also a colander plate on the bottom row. It would be too cool to bring this at a picnic. The Japanese in the old days would have enjoyed eating in the fields, mountains, rivers and the sea more than they do now. There is a park in modern times, but after all it was made, I envy the old Japanese who were directly connected to nature.
This is "Jinchu Bento". I think it's a lunch box during the war. Certainly, it resembles a lunch box of a modern carpenter or someone who works in the meat system. It seems to be simple and sturdy. It is a design that seems to be valid even in modern times with a proper partition.
It is a water bottle at that time, a tea pot. I'm sure it's going to be a nodate. As expected, the style. Even so, it looks heavy. I wonder if the servant will bring it.
Japanese book of the analects? There are also exhibits that are slightly separated from the lunch box. Well, the first floor was the Fufu Museum and the second floor was the Lunch Box Museum, which was like a heavy lunch box.
