Hirosaki Castle Museum/Музей замка Хиросаки

There is a museum inside the castle, and it has a lot of interesting things. Since there was no guide around to ask, I will describe them to the best of my understanding.

Внутри замка Хиросаки есть музей, в котором выставлено много интересных экспонатов. Я опишу их как смогу, потому что когда мы проходили по музею рядом не было гида чтоб спросить.

This is the box for a samurai sword.

Это коробка для самурайского меча.


And this is a sword.

А вот и меч.

Here are some other kinds of weapons, as well as some armor.

Вот еще некоторые виды оружия тех времен, а также доспехи.




Some helmets. The swastika on the red helmet has nothing to do with the Nazis. This symbol is very traditional for Japan and denotes a Buddhist temple on a map. In this case, however, it means that the owner of the helmet belongs to the army of the Tsugaru clan, a local samurai dynasty that ruled Northern Japan. In addition, the flag of Hirosaki depicts it as well.

Шлемы. Свастика на красном шлеме не имеет ничего общего с фашизмом. Этот символ распространен в Японии и на карте им обозначают Буддистские храмы. В данном случае, этот символ на шлеме означает что солдат принадлежит к армии клана Тсугару, династии местного самурая, которая правила северной Японией. Кстати, на флаге города Хиросаки тоже изображена свастика.


These are the household items. The big thing on the left is the fire pit.

Это предметы хозяйства. В большой штуке слева разводили огонь.





 Little windows.

Маленькие окна.


 This model shows what the area originally looked like. Now all that is left is the actual castle (top right corner of the area) and maybe some small buildings. The rest of it now is a park with over two thousand sakura trees.

Эта модель показывает как раньше выглядел весь комплекс замка. Сейчас остался только сам замок (вверху справа) и может быть несколько зданий. Остальное превратили в парк с более чем двумя тысячами деревьев сакуры.


There is not much room inside the castle, so the stairs are very steep.

Замок сам по себе небольшой, поэтому ступеньки очень крутые.



There are pictures of other castles of Japan on the walls.

Помимо экспонатов, на стенах еще развешаны фотографии других замков Японии.


We were pleasantly surprised when we found a place that we have already visited on one of the pictures on the wall.

Мы были приятно удивлены когда на картинках на стене увидели фотографию замка, в котором мы уже были.
