A small museum in Sumida dedicated to the history and culture surrounding tobacco and salt. These two products have been universally adopted by every society throughout the world and their commonplace nature belies their deep rooted past and impact on society. Although tobacco and salt is the main theme, the museum does hold other special exhibitions, as well. The museum originally opened in 1978 in Shibuya, but moved to Sumida in 2015.
