Museum that shows the World of Tora-San

If you visit Katsushika Shibamata Tora-San Museum, you can see the world of Tora-San.

It is a museum of Tora-san in Japanese movie series, "It's tough being a man (Otoko-wa-Tsuraiyo)."

It is great to see the stage setting of "Kuruma-Ya" that was actually used for movies. The hat and the trunk of Tora-san are also displayed. It is impressive that the Japanese scenery in old good days with deep humanity are replicated.

It is also possible to see Yamada Yoji Museum that opened in 2012. It is wonderful to know the world of Mr. Yoji Yamada who has produced the series of "Otoko-wa-Tsuraiyo" and many other masterpieces as film director.

It opened in 1997. It is a middle-sized public museum of Katsushika City at residential area in Shibamata, Katsushika City, Tokyo. Its nearest station is Shibamata station.

For your information, you can go to Katsushika Yamamoto-Tei and Shibamata Taishakuten within a walking distance. In summer, Katsushika Firework Festival is held around Edogawa River near this museum.
