Izumi-Fumoto History Museum (出水麓歴史館)

Hokusatsu Area History and Culture

Izumi-Fumoto History Museum offers insight into why Izumi was so important historically. Examine old maps showing the city’s strategic and defensive role in centuries past given its proximity to neighboring Kumamoto Prefecture. There are models and easy-to-follow diagrams as well as numerous interesting charts.

Visitors can also get a glimpse of what life was like for samurai living in the area about 400 years ago. Check out everyday artefacts and guess what they were used for before learning more through the fascinating exhibits.

Children will enjoy trying on the samurai costumes and there is a decorative screen where photos can be taken. Continue the fun by playing some of the traditional games as they were played by samurai centuries ago.

Izumi-Fumoto History Museum also has a gift shop that stocks local arts and crafts.
