My photographs, taken on February 13, 2004, are of the former museum when it was in Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture, in Japan. That site opened in 2003 and closed in 2006. A new site opened in 2007, north of Tōkyō, in Mibu, Tochigi Pref., the same prefecture where Nikkō is, that famous temple and onsen (hot spring) area. Photos copyright © February 2004 Kat Avila.
