Yushukan is a museum to inherit sincerity and records of enshrined divinities of Yasukuni Shrine by displaying their historically important wills and relics.

This museum established in Meiji 15 (1882) stores 100,000 articles including many pieces of paintings, works of art, armors and weapons. "Yushu", the name of this museum means to associate with and to learn from high-principled people.

Each article displayed in this museum is filled with wish of predecessors who named this museum Yushukan and sincerity of enshrined divinities who devoted themselves to build "a peaceful nation." By touching directly the sincerity of enshrined divinities who dedicated their precious lives for their loving motherland, hometowns and families, you may find something precious.
