 Yayoi Museum

       The Yayoi Museum is maybe one of the most underappreciated small museums in Tokyo. The place is not only worth a visit, it has an interesting history as well. The museum was founded in 1984 and displays works created by the illustrator Kasho Takabatake. The history started in 1929 with a nine year old boy, Takumi Kano, who saw a picture called "Goodbye to my hometown" drawn by Takabatake. Years later he saw in 1965 he saw the picture again in a magazine and read that the illustrator was living in a retirement home in Akashi-city. The two men met and became friends. Takabatake eventually moved in with Kano, who founded the museum after the dead of his friend.
