Japan, Fukuoka City Museum

Fukuoka has always been the southern gateway to Japan and the center of trade, only it was called at different times in different ways. In the VI century, the city was called Ha, from the 11th century it was renamed Hakata (now called one of the districts of the city). In 1601, a representative of the Kuroda clan built a castle in these places called Fukuoka, and Hakata became a settlement near its walls and was renamed Fukuoka.

The city museum of Fukuoka is located in the coastal area of ​​Momochi, near the Fukuoka tower. Its building can be easily recognized by arched constructions and huge windows. In the museum exhibits are distributed in three exhibition halls. In two of them, every two months, new thematic exhibitions are opened. The third hall, where the permanent exposition is located, acquaints visitors with the history of education and culture of Fukuoka.

It is possible that the territory of the modern city was one of the first Japanese protostates, its ruler received in 57 the gold seal and the title of Wang. Today this seal is one of the main values ​​of the museum, it is a national treasure.

This seal was found in April 1784 in the southern part of the island of Honshu – found in the land by two peasants. Researchers still have to find out how it turned out, because in 57 CE, the emperor of China Guan-di handed it to the Japanese ambassador to deliver a seal to his master, the ruler of the country Na, located in the northern part of the island of Kyushu.
