Chido Museum

LocationTsuruoka, Yamagata, Japan

The Chido Museum is a private museum in Tsuruoka, Yamagata Prefecture.

It was founded in 1950 by the former Lord Sakai of the Shōnai Domain who donated his properties with the intention of promoting local culture. The museum houses folk materials from Shōnai, classical calligraphy, woodcraft and ceremonial sake barrels.

In addition to the Goinden, retirement residence of the Sakai Lords built in 1863, the Lord's arsenal, and the attached Japanese garden, designated as Place of Scenic Beauty, a number of buildings have been relocated and newly built at the museum site. Two Western style from the early Meiji period built by the prefectural governor Mishima Michitsune have been designated as Important Cultural Property: the Former Nishitagawa District Office from 1881, relocated in 1972; and the Former Tsuruoka Police Station from 1884, relocated in 1957.
