Zero Fighter on display in front
Yushukan is a museum to inherit sincerity and records of enshrined divinities of Yasukuni Shrine by displaying their historically important wills and relics.
This museum established in Meiji 15 (1882) stores 100,000 articles including many pieces of paintings, works of art, armors and weapons.
"Yushu", the name of this museum means to associate with and to learn from high-principled people. Each article displayed in this museum is filled with wish of predecessors who named this museum Yushukan and sincerity of enshrined divinities who devoted themselves to build "a peaceful nation."
By touching directly the sincerity of enshrined divinities who dedicated their precious lives for their loving motherland, hometowns and families, you may find something precious.

●Yasukuni Shrine
The Imperial Shrine of Yasukuni, informally known as the Yasukuni Shrine, is a Shinto shrine located in Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan.
It was founded by Emperor Meiji and commemorates those who died in service of the Empire of Japan, which existed from the Meiji Restoration of 1869 until the nation was renamed during the Allied occupation in 1947.
The shrine's purpose has been expanded over the years to include those who died in the wars involving Japan spanning from the entire Meiji and Taishō period, and lesser part of the Shōwa period.
The shrine lists the names, origins, birthdates, and places of death of 2,466,532 people and animals.

Another memorial at the Honden building commemorates anyone who died on behalf of the Japanese empire, but includes Koreans and Taiwanese who served Japan at the time.
In addition, the Chinreisha building is a shrine built to inter the souls of all the people who died during WWII, regardless of their nationality. It is located directly south of the Yasukuni Honden.
Various Shinto festivals are associated with the shrine, particularly in Spring and Autumn seasons when portable Mikoshi shrines are rounded about honoring the ancestral gods of Japan.

●The Imperial Palace
The Imperial Palace is in the center of Tokyo, approxsimatetely ten minutes' walk from Tokyo Station.
In 1868, the Tokugawa shogunate was overthrown, and the country's capital and Imperial Residence were moved from Kyoto to Tokyo.
Visitors can see the Nijubashi, two bridges. The stone bridge in front is called Meganebashi (Eyeglass Bridge) for its looks.
The bridge in the back was formerly a wooden bridge with two levels, from which the name Nijubashi (Double Bridge) is derived.
