Watanabe Museum

This museum opened in 1978 to showcase the collection amassed by Tottori doctor Hajime Watanabe. Hosting a variety of genres of works, the museum is called a shrine for Japanese antiques. The diversity in scope of the items on exhibit is unrivaled in the nation and draws a plethora of visitors from overseas. Particularly worth seeing are some of Japan’s most outstanding examples of armour and weapons.
