The National Museum of Japanese History, next to Sakura Castle Park, is the only national museum in Japan dedicated to the comprehensive research and display of Japanese history and culture. It is affectionately known as Rekihaku.
Its exhibits focus on lifestyle history, allowing visitors to deepen their understanding of how people in Japan lived from primitive and ancient times through to the modern day, and how Japan’s culture has developed.
The Kurashi Botanical Garden, which is also next to Sakura Castle Park, is a botanical garden that displays the plants that have supported our lives and culture. It is divided into six themes – "eating," "weaving and paper-making," "dyeing," "curing," "making tools," and "painting and burning."
