The smallest archaeological museum in Japan

Une Koukokan is referred to as the smallest museum in Japan. It has been re-opened as Ako City Une Koukokan on November 11, 2011. The museum has been renewed for more convenient use, with easier-to-understand explanations of the exhibits, and hands-on-learning services. The museum carries archaeological and folklore materials mainly of the old Ako county (Ako city, Aioi city, Kamigori town). We hold exhibitions related to the history of the Jomon to Muromachi eras, special and planned exhibits related to specific themes. Our curator offers explanations of the exhibits anytime. Close to the Koukokan, there are two historic parks (designated by the prefectural government), and other cultural assets to see. Guides are available upon prior request. Please feel free to contact us for details.
