Exhibitions planned by the museum are attractive to the visitors. On the other day, I visited there with my son to see the goods of Tokugawa Shogun. It was Saturday and the museum permitted children to behave loudly. My son brought his fan with Tokugawa family mark. A staff of the museum blamed him because he had that fan so... More
