Recommended Souvenirs

Vinyl Black (1,458 yen [incl. tax])
Cotton Black (1,080 yen each [incl. tax])

The black vinyl apron is well crafted, with adjustable straps and a museum logo printed on the chest. The other apron, woven from fine cotton, comes in black. Choose the type to suit your purpose. The vinyl apron is best if you need something sturdy, and the cotton apron is machine-washable.

Hikifuda (handbill) Memorandum
Type: five types
Price: 324 yen each (incl. tax)

These memo pads are decorated as hikifuda, the historical equivalents of our present-day handbills. Hikifuda advertisements were first printed in the Edo Period and reached their heyday later during the Meiji and Taisho Eras. The shop names in the advertisements are blanked out to provide memo space.

Gutenberg's 42-line Bible T-shirt
Color: White, Black / Size: L, M, S
Price: 2,160 yen each (incl. tax)

Gutenberg is said to be the founder of modern letterpress printing. The T-shirt is decorated with the museum's precious holding, one of the pages of the Gutenberg bible printed around 1455.

Original Post Cards

We carry copies of cards printed in the Suruga typeface—an important cultural property. Visitors can purchase postcards rendering motifs of 54 articles from the museum collection, and postcards using various printing technologies such as letterpress printing and relief intaglio printing. The shop's repertoire will continue to grow in the future.
