The Tokugawa Museum

Recommended Spot

The Tokugawa Museum was established in 1977 by the Suifu-Meitokukai Foundation, to which Kuniyuki Tokugawa, the 13th lord of the feudal Mito that was a branch of the Tokugawa Shogun family, had donated the heritage of successive lords' belongings and archaic writings.
There are approximately 30,000 collections, mainly left by Ieyasu Tokugawa (the first Shogun), his son Yorifusa, the successive feudal lords, and their families. The Museum also exhibits the manuscripts of Dai Nihon-shi (The Great History of Japan) kept in Shoko-kan on the same site and about 30,000 old documents that were gathered to make the history book.
The Tokugawa Museum is the only museum that exhibits a large collection of historical materials relevant to understanding the lives of Daimyo families, focusing on the Mito Tokugawa family.
