(11/3/21-1/23/22) Nakamura Domain and Early Modern Period


museum exhibit banner

In July of 1871, the newly established Meiji administration abolished the Han system of feudal domains and established prefectures, known in Japanese as “廃藩置県” (haihanchiken). The daimyo, or Japanese feudal lords, saw their territorial control come to an end, as the Meiji administration aimed for centralized authoritarian rule, beginning the dawn of a new era.

In order to commemorate 150 years since haihanchiken, the museum is presenting a display on the Nakamura Domain as it entered a new age, focusing on the drastic upheavals in the Bakumatsu period (the closing days of the Tokugawa shogunate) to the abolition of feudal domains and the establishment of prefectures.

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we ask for your cooperation in countermeasures such as wearing a mask. This exhibition may be changed or cancelled due to COVID-19 countermeasures.
