15th Anniversary Special Exhibition
The DNA of special effects movies
:Godzilla is coming to Mt. Fuji
Godzilla movie series continues from 1954 to the present. One of its major attractions, the unrealistic Godzilla rampage that fills the screen, was born from a video technology named "TOKUSATSU (Special effects)". This exhibition exhibits about 200 precious items, including monsters with a sense of reality that makes one believe that they were creatures used in special effects, and miniature superweapons with detailed designs. Here we will introduce the social background of the film production process, which included the warning of anti-war and environmental destruction, the appeal of Toho TOKUSATSU films, and the special effects technology that Japan is proud of throughout the world.
We will also introduce the activities of people from Yamanashi Prefecture, such as Toho founder KOBAYASHI Ichizo (Nirasaki city), who created 'Godzilla', and TAKAYAMA Ryosaku (Nishikatsura town), a top monster sculptor.
The image will be released soon.

In recent years, a new "Prefectural treasure" will be released at once, centering on materials designated as cultural properties by Yamanashi prefecture. For many people, from children to adults, we want them to feel close to the rich culture that "Local yamanashi" has fostered and the feelings of our predecessors who have protected and handed down that culture. In addition, the museum, which is celebrating its 15 year anniversary, will exhibit items that are popular with the people of Yamanashi, among the unique materials that Yamanashi has collected so far, and will introduce new attractions. The image will be released soon.

Rain‐making rituals in Yamanashi
Temples and shrines in Yamanashi prefecture have wooden statues of partially destroyed Shinto and Buddhist deities used for praying for rain. In folk beliefs, there are ways to physically and mentally torment gods and Buddha, and to make their wishes come true in exchange for freedom from suffering, and some of the damaged statues of gods and Buddha are thought to have been used for such prayers. In this exhibition, we will introduce the traditions and customs of rain begging in Yamanashi Prefecture, as well as the statues of gods and Buddha used for rain begging, and will analyze the relationship between gods, Buddha, people and nature in folk beliefs. The image will be released soon.

The Douso-jin, or the Village Boundary God, is a god originally enshrined at town boundaries, the crossroads where streets met, and at mountain passes where they prevented any bad spirits from entering the village. At the same time, they were also considered to be the god for good marriages and the blessing of children. Even to this day, many simple Douso-jin statutes are left all throughout Japan.
