Kaleidoscope Gallery MISEGURA

Since the Kaleidoscope Gallery MISEGURA opened in August 2010 in Nagareyama-city, Chiba, many people have visited it and appreciated the beauty of various kaleidoscopes. Its old Japanese-style building, which was built in 1889, came to be registered as a tangible cultural asset on July 25th, 2011.

Nagareyama Dentetsu

My sons and I had a chance to visit this gallery this month. Nagareyama Dentetsu (local train running only 5.7 km) took us to the Nagareyama station, from which we took a 5-minute walk to the gallery.

Kaleidoscopes are called MANGEKYO in Japanese. When we looked into the various MANGEKYO, we forgot the high temperature and felt refreshed. I heard that some MANGEKYO there were the winners of the world MANGEKYO contest.

The staff introduced the big mirror, which was set at one end of a trianglular tube. It was not just a normal mirror. When my elder son looked into the mirror, I took a picture of my kaleidoscoped-son at the other end of the tube. The picture came out like this;

You can purchase small Mangekyo, kaleidoscopes. Also, the “Mangekyo handmade kit” is popular as a souvenir.
