Ryozen Museum of History

Japanese history went through some dramatic jolts at the end of Tokugawa shogunate and into the Meiji restoration. Ryoma Sakamoto and others loyal to the Emperor gathered in Kyoto as they attempted to change the dictatorial government of the Tokugawa shogunate, which had the loyal Shinsen-gumi, or shogunate police, standing in the front line to protect its interests, as fighting unfolded. This museum has a replica of Ryoma's beloved pistol, some letters of his and the sword that killed him as well as Shinsen-gumi banners, all of which bring the history and literature on the conflict to life. Models, films and computers also are used to tell the story. In addition, there is a corner where visitors can dress up as Shinsen-gumi members for photos. In the shrine next door, the graves of Ryoma Sakamoto, Shintaro Nakaoka and other Emperor supporters can be found.
Wheelchair users can rest assured as the museum is wheelchair friendly.
