The Reimei-kan museum was opened in 1983 to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the Meiji Restoration (1968).

The exhibition room aims to acquaint visitors with the history, folk customs and the fine arts and crafts of Kagoshima through an informative and enjoyable experience.

The Reimei-kan is enclosed in the ruins of Tsurumaru castle, which was a foothold for the Shimazu (the feudal lord of Satsuma) during the Edo period. The moat, stonewall and stone bridge are still standing today, and have been designated as historical sites by the prefecture.
