  • Located between Nagoya Castle and Tokugawa-en, the city of Haku-walled streets, a quiet street, has a cultural center, and futabakan is located. It's a nice building. It costs 200 yen to enter the museum.

  • It is a rebuilding reproduction of the mansion where Momosuke Fukuzawa who was said to be the power king lived with Sadako Kawakami. It seems to be a base of "cultural michi". This time, we visited only futabakan in the hot summer. I didn't have the strength to go around the other. I'm a little sorry.

  • One of many interesting houses in this Cultural Path of Nagoya (Bunka no Michi). We didn't go into the house due to time constraints, but wandering the grounds and admiring the architecture was also a treat! The Sightseeing Bus (Me-guru) stops right outside this house, and is worth the 500yen price as it takes u thru a loop of the city covering many interesting places!
  • Futaba Museum is the former home of Japan’s first actress, Sadayakko Kawakami, and Momosuke Fukuzawa, a power station pioneer and tycoon. The house, was built in 1920, but originally located in Higashi-Futaba-cho. It was relocated to its current location in 2000 and restoration was completed in 2005. The residence is now a designated cultural property.The house, nicknamed the “Futaba Palace”, had a revolutionary design and the interior was stocked with electrical fittings that were groundbreaking at the time. Such was the influence of the occupants, that the house was regularly visited by political, financial, and cultural guests. Guided tours are available, which last 30 minutes but are conducted in Japanese, though a detailed English leaflet is available. Entry is 200 Yen.The closest metro station is Takaoka Station (Sakuradori Line) or you can take the sightseeing bus which has a stop right outside the museum.
