The Shimadzu Foundation Memorial Museum

The Shimadzu Foundation Memorial Museum is located in the Kiyamachi-Nijo district. This place is the original founding site of Shimadzu Corporation and where its history began. There are Machiya-style wooden structures that feature a blend of Japanese and Western elements, such as stained-glass windows. In 1999, they were designated as national “Registered Tangible Cultural Properties” by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, and in 2007, they were certified as “Heritage of Industrial Modernization” properties by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
