Iwashita New Ginger Museum

A popular destination for a fun-filled time

A museum dedicated to Iwashita Young Ginger (pickled ginger), which is commonly eaten across Japan. The inside of the museum is a soft pink, matching the distinct color of the products. There are also plenty of playful photo spots at the museum for you to have fun and enjoy yourself, such as the "Ginger Jinja" (Ginger Shrine) that's said to give you good luck in love, and a giant, 5-meter tall young ginger "hat" that you can try on. There is also a museum shop and cafe, so the museum is great for buying souvenirs and having a light meal too.
