The John Lennon Museum is closing

13 Dec

I mentioned a couple of times on this blog that the world’s only official John Lennon Museum is in Saitama, Japan.

(See this post and this one.)

Well, I just found out that due to a declining number of visitors to the museum, it will close in 2010 October.

I’d like to see the John Lennon Museum but I’ve have never visited it yet mainly due to it’s fairly inconvenient location and the Β₯1,500 (about US $12) per person admission charge.

But, since it’s scheduled to close in about ten months, I might visit it before then.

The news that the John Lennon Museum will close comes only five days after the 29th anniversary of John Lennon’s death…and also one day after I heard that Wendy’s fast-food restaurant is exiting the Japan market this month (Click here to read my post about Wendy’s Japan closing).

This museum’s closing reminds me of the closing of the Rock And Roll Museum in Tokyo last January.
(I mention it in this post).
