Hello Again,

A couple of follow ups on the John Lennon museum in Japan, recently closed...

Yes, souvenirs were expensive, but Japan itself is expensive--certainly one of the highest living costs in the world, with Tokyo being particularly pricey.  Definitely a challenge for the budget traveler.  I bought a wallet at the museum, can't recall how much it was, but it's a quality item and I use it, so worth it.

About the cameras, I can see why the no photo policy would disappoint some, but I looked at it this way--first, the better the museum, the less likely patrons are allowed to take photos, especially with flash, and this was a high quality museum; second, if I can't use my camera, I pay closer attention and I use my memory to record the event.  I have vivid memories of that museum, almost 10 years after being there.  There were themes and an atmosphere to that museum that would have been disrupted with flashbulbs and camera phones clicking away.  Nice to have a sanctuary from that stuff, IMHO.

Let's hope it reopens so more folks will be able to visit, and at least have the opportunity to see some of the "material world" from which emerged a lot of the greatest popular music of the 20th century.

Best,
