In the Tohoku region, the Owa Mountains in the center, the Kitakami Mountains in the east, and the Dewa Mountains in the west are long lines from north to south. The life to follow hunting has been practiced.
The “Matagi Hunting Equipment” collected here is centered around the Matagi village along the Owa Mountains, and has 122 hunting equipment, 257 clothing and carrying tools, and 15 shack-related processing and processing tools. There are 29 points, 7 trade-related tools, 56 faith tools, and a total of 486 points.
In particular, the collection of tools for bear hunting and wild boar hunting is extremely important not only as it has good mass and is not only valuable as a feature of regional livelihoods, but also for understanding hunting customs in the Tohoku region.
