Hiraizumi Cultural Heritage Center

平泉文化遺産センター(平泉町)

The Hiraizumi Cultural Heritage Center was established in 2009 as an effort to promote the “Cultural Heritage of Hiraizumi” towards inscription on the World Heritage List. The facility has many important artifacts unearthed from Yanagi no Gosho Site, as well as materials that explain the “Pure Land belief” of Buddhism, which was the spiritual foundation of the reign of the Oshu Fujiwara clan. The exhibits are explained in Japanese, English, Korean, and Chinese.
No photos in the facility.
