What kind of place?
Construction began in the 12th year of Taisho (1923), and Okinaza, which was built in the 14th year of Taisho (1925), opened in the 2nd year of Showa (1927). Initially, it was built as a playhouse where Kabuki can be played, and later it was used as a theater for a traveling theater company, and then it was also used as a movie theater and renovated with a projection room on the second floor.
At the end of the war, Kokichi Takada, Koji Tsuruta, and Ryutaro Otomo also appeared, but the museum closed around the 35th year of Showa (around 1960). Since then, it has been preserved and utilized while being used and refurbished for various purposes, but it was donated to Fuchu City, Hiroshima Prefecture in the 30th year of Heisei (2018), and it was designated as a national registered tangible cultural property on August １７, the 2nd year of Reiwa (2020).
