この郷土館は、旧平安家住宅に建てられたもので この辺の地域、多田というところがあって 、銀銅山があった。それを精錬していたのが、
I went to the former Hiraga residence of the Kawanishi City Folk Museum. The former site of the Tada silver and copper mine smelter, Heian smelter.
Kawanishi City Folk Museum
Speaking of Kawanishi City, it is Osaka, but is it closer to Itami?
I’ll go to the airport first, then go to Nose.
If you go in the direction of Ichikura Dam in Nose, you will find this Kawanishi Municipal Folk Museum in the residential area around the intersection. It’s quite deep, it’s a mountain…
After going up a narrow road and passing through a residential area, the Kawanishi Municipal Folk Museum is about the end of the road.
This local museum was built in the former residence of the Heian family, and he lived in an area called Tada, where there was a silver and copper mine. It was the Heian Refinery that refined it.
So there is also the site of the refinery… Overall, it’s like having a house and a smelter.
A lot of people lived in this house and he probably ran this refinery.
It is such a ruin.
So, he decided to make this place like a local folk museum, so this facility was built. There are also paintings by artists on display.
We also exhibit the works of masters of chopstick making. Many manholes were exhibited at the time of replacement.
Former Hiraga House
So, the former Hiraga residence is a nationally designated cultural property. Completed in 1918 by Yoshimi Hiraga, a doctor of engineering, it was relocated to this location from Odo, Kawanishi City in November 1990.
After graduating from the University of Tokyo, Mr. Hiraga went to Europe and studied looms.
Then, he returned to Japan and became involved in its development, and later founded his own company and became chairman of the Osaka business world.
That’s how he made his fortune and he completed this house. It’s a fine house. But he’s great…
This mansion is also used as a movie location. I’m sure it’s because of the location…
