Ii Museum

Museums, History
Samurai helmets, swords and body armour are crammed into a huge townhouse in backstreet Gion. Early attempts at curation have been overwhelmed as the rooms overflow with donations of historical treasures. Among the more unusual exhibits are grizzled Buddha statues, the likes of which you won't find even at Kyoto's many temples and shrines.
