Dejima Restoration Project

【Clerk’s Quarters】
This building was used as Dutch official’s residence and a warehouse.

The first floor was the warehouse and the second floor was divided into four rooms.

The appearance was restored faithfully and inside is used as display room introducing that Dejima was connected with the world and every region of Japan through the trade and cultural exchange in an easy-to understand way.

Called “glass vision” with a big screen was installed to introduce the connection between Dejima and the world on the first floor.
The big world map on the wall shows the places of the countries and cities that had a connect with Dejima.

The movie using the model of Dejima and projection mapping introduces the connection between Dejima and Japan on the second floor.
The map of Japan shows the each region related to Dejima.

The scene of Edo trip by the chief factor is recreated by miniature models

Imagining the whole role that Dejima played while seeing displays is recommended.

【Six Restored Buildings】

July 8, 2016
The six buildings show themselves.
The streetscape from the era of national seclusion is must-see.
They need interior and exterior work and display installation work in order to be open late in October.
Can’t wait for its completion.

July 2, 2016
Report from the restoration construction site.

Assembly of main structural materials of Clerk’s Office begins.
It seems that the frame of the first floor will be seen soon.

Next to Clerk’s Office, the mad-wall foundation procedure of No.14 warehouse has been proceeding.
This is the traditional method using bamboo and straw, which needs creative measure because it is not able to make holes in pillars due to its structure.
Laying mud for walls will start next week.

Come and see the construction site from between the temporary fence when visiting Dejima.
