The Yayoi Museum is dedicated to showing manga, advertisements, and other works of illustration from the Meiji (1868-1912), Taisho (1912-26) and Showa (1926-89) eras of Japanese history. These works have a quaint retro feel and evoke the atmosphere of the eras they represent.
The museum has three floors. The first two floors hold special exhibits that change every three months. The third floor is devoted to the work of illustrator Kasho Takabatake, whose work was the original inspiration for founder Takumi Kano to open the museum. Special exhibits of illustrations from boys' and girls' magazines are particularly popular.
General admission: 900 yen
