  • I flew from Osaka to see the genealogy of the beauty of samurai. It was the middle of the consecutive holidays, and the museum was quite crowded, and in the special exhibition, although the people who watched in the front row and those who looked over their shoulders were divided in line, the end of each row was difficult to understand and the audience was puzzled. The number of characters and contents are impressive, and there are a lot of exhibitions of the sword and the armor of the national treasure. The permanent exhibition was well-devised so that children and adults could learn, and i was able to take pictures of the Japanese issue of the three spears in the whole country, including the gold mark.

  • I was free for a few hours on a business trip, so I went to see the gold seal. Hakata Station is a 20-minute bus ride + a few minutes' walk away. The admission fee is a discount of the yen when the sightseeing book is presented. Very reasonable. When you enter, you suddenly get a gold seal! It's smaller than I thought, but it's great. The exhibition was also very impressive.
