Tsuchiura City Museum reopened

The reopening of 土浦市立博物館, or the Tsuchiura City Museum after a six-month refurbishment is today. The admission to the museum is free today though this museum’s admission fee is very inexpensive to begin with. A Japanese tea ceremony club in Tsuchiura will serve free tea to first 100 people today, and on July 8, 15, and 22 from 10AM to 3PM.

Kijo Park next to (or behind) the City Museum is a nice to place to have a picnic. There’s a nice pond teemed with carp, and if you (or your kids) get tired of looking at the fish, then you can turn around and look at monkeys instead!

The Machikado Kura I wrote about a while ago is located within minutes of the museum/park.
