A truly enjoyable experience being greeted by the first locomotive to run on the Thai-Burma railway - the Death Railway - at the entrance to being transported from the samurai period to modern day Japan as I made my way through the museum. Each exhibition room flowed smoothly to the next, with poems written by samurais and farewell letters from young Japanese soldiers to their mothers. True to Japan's ink stamp culture, there were many to be collected at the museum. If you're a history enthusiast like myself, I definitely recommend a trip to the Yushukan museum as it guarantees a most wonderful and information-packed afternoon of learning about Japan's history. My only comment would be the lack of English descriptions for some of the exhibits displayed, but that aside, I delighted in my time spent at this museum.
