The items on display here are actually the belongings of a collector in the city, and are displayed after bicycle shops in Ozu closed down. Therefore, all authentic items from that time are on display.
The item in this photo was apparently taken from a candy shop in Ozu.
This is an exhibit that recreates the police box as it was in 1966. I'm sure it will make the person stationed there at the time feel good.
On the left side of the photo, there is also an exhibit that recreates a drug store in Ozu.
This is an exhibition that recreates a living room in Japan in 1966. It is decorated with a 1966 calendar from a local bank that was distributed around town at the time.
Ozu City belongs to an area called Nanyo on the western side of Shikoku, and is centered around the Ozu Basin, facing the Seto Inland Sea to the north and the Shikoku Mountains to the south. The clear stream, Hijikawa River, flows through the center of the city, and as the name suggests, the river curves like an elbow. Ta. In the Edo period, the remains of a prosperous castle town around Ozu Castle are still alive on the banks of the Hijigawa River.
