Tora-san Museum

Outer Tokyo > Katsushika Ward > ShibamataTora-san Museum

A museum dedicated to the film series. Each room contains scenes from the movies, and much of the museum is designed like the set. All of which probably won’t mean much to foreign visitors, but walking through the museum does give a sense of what the area was like during the later Showa years and how well-loved the series is by many Japanese.
