Elvis Lives On In Tokyo!

I have shown photos before of the Elvis dancers who congregate in Yoyogi Park every Sunday but thats not the only Elvis-related thing in Tokyo as there is actually a museum dedicated to the icon. Hidden away on a side street from Harajuku’s Takeshita Dori (street) is the Rock & Roll Museum which I visited today.

 

This is basically one floor of Elvis memorabillia with the downstairs containing a load of merchandise including quite a bit of stuff from glam rockers Kiss. Apart from the odd song by these artists (namely Crazy nights, Suspicious Minds and Can’t help falling in love) I certainly wouldn’t say I am a fan but I was impressed by the look of the place from the outside which features an Elvis statue.
