Reproduction of Oyakusho Offices

Officials working at Bunbu Gakkō were under the supervision of two to three Ometsuke superintendent officers, who were typically retainers with a fief of 100 - 200 koku in rice and took daily shifts. In historical materials such as Bunbu Gakkō Diary and Gakkō Gōjōmoku school itemized codes, Ometsukes recorded their daily office work.
Recorded in those documents are drawings of office furniture that officials ordered, such as chests of drawers and desks.
Reproduced in this room is how officials worked in their offices back then as described in those historical materials. You may touch the exhibits to feel for yourself to gain a taste of the Edo period.
