Emperor’s Room Memorial Park

Emperor’s Memorial Park is a recreation of the former Shiobara Imperial Villa which was used as a summer resort for the imperial family.

The villa was originally owned by Michitsune Mishima, the Governor of Tochigi Prefecture at that time, and was later offered to the Imperial Household Ministry in 1904. It was visited by Imperial family members including Emperors Meiji, Taisho and Showa and Princes Chichibu, Takamatsu and Mikasa.

During the World War II, Princesses of Emperor Showa evacuated from Tokyo to this villa. After the war the villa was transferred to the Ministry of Welfare. Today, the Tenno-no-ma room, which was relocated to the current location in 1981, is open to the public with its beautiful garden.

In the building there are a variety of materials that show the life of the Imperial household such as their stationeries, documents and photographs along with furnishings.
