The museum is dedicated to the memory of Sakamoto Ryoma however, it appears to be designed basically for Japanese speakers (and readers) as little information is provided in English. There is a reconstruction of the room where Ryoma and his companion where assassinated complete with replicas of the blood stained scroll and byoubu originally in that room. Found that a... More

There you can find a lot of documents about Sakamoto Ryoma but unless you can read old Japanese paper, it's kinda difficult to enjoy fully the tour. You received only few information in English....

It was just average for us as the museum is focused on letters and newspaper articles, all in Japanese. So if you can't read Japanese you won't get much out of it. There is an English pamphlet available but it won't give you a deeper understanding of Ryoma. The view from the roof is nice though. Discounted entry with the... More
