With the Izumo fudoki, an ancient record of the features of Izumo, have a close look at life with its backgrounds in ancient times. Also explore the ancient culture that has been passed down to date.
In addition to the myths themselves, there is some additional important information giving glimpses of ancient life including commerce in the Izumo fudoki. In doing so, appreciate what a valuable historical source the Izumo fudoki is today.
The market was a place where various people and things came and went. Take a look at the microcosm of society where a market was, and get closer to the commerce and everyday life of that time.
Ancient life is introduced with some models which show the commerce, living conditions, diet, and what people did to amuse themselves at that time based on the Izumo fudoki.
With a display of modern photos and everyday implements that remain in use today in some areas, look for the ancient culture which still exists in Japanese life. The fact that landscape, natural environment, and local characteristics still remain in the Izumo province largely unchanged from the fudoki period is revealed by the Asakumi area case.
