Star Wars Fan Museum In Tokyo

I recently came across this little-known Star Wars fan museum in Tokyo which is a small, but sizeable exhibition belonging to a collector. Among the exhibits on display are a wide range of figures, a lightsaber, toys, masks, trainers, t-shirts, pens, magnets, collectibles, framed pictures, DVD’s, books, magazines and so on.

There were also some much sought-after Japan exclusives like the traditional Japanese hand print tenegui (thin hand towel made of cotton), Japanese chirashi movie posters/flyers, an R2D2 Mount Fuji poster, lightsaber chopsticks and ‘Star Wars Celebration Japan‘ items, some of which can be seen in the photo below.

The photo above shows the section focusing on some other Japanese memorabilia such as the local releases of the 1980’s cartoon shows ‘Ewoks‘, ‘Droids‘ as well as the original ‘Clone Wars‘ series. One other notable exhibit is a programme for the ‘George Lucas’ Super Live Adventure’ which was some rare 1993 show blending the likes of Indiana Jones, Willow, Tucker, American Graffiti and of course Star Wars into one performance of something or another.

Amongst the other stuff is the Vader collection, Star Wars shooting locations books (above) and magnets (below) and a replica of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber (or is technically Anakin Skywalker’s as Obi-Wan gave it to Luke in ‘A New Hope‘ (1977) which you can have a quick play with.

    Hmm that museum looks familiar, I’m pretty sure I’ve been there. Glad to see it hasn’t closed down, there were some rumours to that effect!

    Hi there Natalia! I’m afraid that this is not a museum and was just a rather unfunny April Fools joke! Thanks for the thought though! Sorry to let you down!

    Kind Regards
