Visited #formerfordfactory for the first time. The exhibition is mainly about Japanese occupation during WW2. It was painful for me to look those displays as a Japanese, but I've got to know it was much more painful for Singaporean to look back that period. I appreciate they have kept those items til now and opened the exhibition to let us learn the history and they (officially, might not the all of them) forgave us. Unfortunately not many Japanese learned, or some even don't know Singapore was Syonanto. It is maybe an educational matter, but I think, one of the reasons is because Singaporeans are always welcoming us and never blame about the historical matters to us (at least tourists visiting here). However this exhibition as well as other war related places like War memorial park, Changi chapel, Japanese cemetery park etc should be known by Japanese tourists. Hope many Japanese guidebooks show those places and encourage to visit. .
襟を正して行ったところは#フォーマーフォードファクトリー 日本占領時までフォードの工場だったところで、現在は#昭南島 に関する展示を主とした博物館になりました。日本占領時の展示が色々。以前訪れたチャンギ博物館同様、大変興味深いと同時に心苦しくて深呼吸しながらゆっくり回りました。当地の色々な物品と、日本で報道した新聞や雑誌などなど本当に貴重なものばかり。当地から日本へ宛てた手紙があったり、最後は涙が止まらなくなりました。
今までチャンギ博物館や日本人墓地など日本占領時にまつわる場所を訪れて来たけど、そこで日本人に会ったことないのです。私も何十回とシンガポール来てて、1回ずつしか行ったことはないけれど、もっと知られて欲しいなと思います。
こちらはフラッシュなしの写真撮影がOKだったので、展示物も後日upします。

A day in 1970s at the old ford factory! Nice scheduled tour for the kids to experience the life in the post war Singapore. They were also supposed to solve a crime too. #nlb #nas #archivesofsingapore #oldfordfactory #postwarsingapore

Learning about Singapore history during World War II. Was glad that we joined the mandarin-speaking guided tour as the Tour is very knowledgeable. Exceeded our expectations. 👍👍
