Hideyo Noguchi Memorial Hall

This memorial hall was established to honor the world-renowned bacteriologist, Hideyo Noguchi (1876-1928) and to introduce his life. On the property of the memorial hall is Noguchi's birthplace, where the fireplace that he fell into and suffered a serious burn injury and the alcove post on which the words of resolution he made before he went to Tokyo are carved are restored as they were in his day. The exhibition room contains many resources that introduce Noguchi's life and accomplishments, including his favorite articles, letters, and photographs. In Dr. Noguchi's Laboratory, which was recreated here, a robot in the image of Dr. Noguchi is exhibited. The robot answers questions from visitors and gives encouraging messages to visitors. And there was renovated in April, 2015. There was the experience-based corner that could learn about the bacteriology by the movie and available games.
