The building was once a 'Pharmacy' but is now a look at the past as a typical merchant establishment now maintained as a museum. There are two floors including an exhibition room. Well worth the visit.

This museum in a restored old house/shop building has two separate displays. The ground floor has a display of items from an old pharmacy. The rest of the ground floor and all of the upper floor demonstrate various crafts from the period. We enjoyed our visit which was well worth the very modest fee.

A modest entrance fee makes this worth visiting. The artisans tools were interesting. The view of the hall itself is lovely.

Once a pharmacy, the original exterior has been preserved and now houses a restored storefront as well as other traditional rooms. It also has exhibition rooms featuring various traditional merchants and their wares.

Across the street from Maeda Tosanokami-ke museum, ticket is for both places. Large variety of local items. Plus for me was you can take pictures. Worth the stop.

This is a restored shop (a pharmacy) on the ground floor and an arts & crafts exhibition space on the upper floor. The most interesting aspect for me was the explanation of how the pharmacy operated.
