Old Uwaoka Elementary School

Old Uwaoka Elementary School

The Old Uwaoka Elementary School locates in the town of Daigo in northwestern Ibaraki. The school was built in 1879, and operated until March of 2001. Today, the school building still remains and retains its nostalgic atmosphere. The desks and chairs still are in place, and you can even find some doodles here and there on them. In 2010, the building was designated as a national tangible cultural property, as one of the rare wooden buildings remaining from the Meiji Period (1868 – 1912). On the second Saturday and Saturday of October, a local workshop is held at the Old Uwaoka Elementary School. There, participants can learn how to make local specialties such as apple jam and konnyaku.
