Located just a short walk away from Matto Station, the Hakusan City Museum provides a place to experience the long and rich history of Hakusan City. It includes artifacts covering a long range of history, from Jomon Period (14,000 to 300 BCE) pottery, to Edo Period (1603 to 1868) agricultural tools used in the area. They also include a model reproduction of Living National Treasure Masamine Sumitani’s sword making forge, works from Haya Akegarasu and Hakka Matsumoto (famous Buddhists), and a restoration of the nearby, nationally designated historical site Yokoe-no-Sho (Estate of Todaiji Temple).
