The Prosperity of the Tokugawas

The treasures of the Tokugawa clan, Nikko Toshogu shrine and the Makino clan


400 years ago, in 1618, the Makino clan was assigned to rule the Nagaoka area.

Some lords of the Makinos became members of the Elders Council, and the family occupied an important position in the Tokugawa shogunate.

The displayed items will show the relationship of the Tokugawa and the Makino, as well as the spread of Toshogu shrines in the Edo period.

The silver seal used for the treaties with the Powers at the opening of the nation in 1858 was displayed for the first time.
