Tips for you
We (I and my friends) came here by accident and it wasn’t a disappointment. We experienced some Japanese history and culture through the exhibition of the early Showa’s picture books. The Medieval and even the modern illustrations are really nice and historical. There was a funny story (if it’s not rude i bet) that a rich mouse could marry a woman but then the bride just run away from him. And he decided to become a monk. That was sad tho.
