The Beatles Museum To Open In Japan

(Gibson) Paul McCartney recently made news when he performed at Japan's Nippon Budokan, staging his first appearance at the legendary venue since The Beatles performed there in 1966. Now, Japan is set to open that nation's first museum to feature a permanent display of memorabilia related to the Fab Four.

Located in the city of Nakatsu, the Beatles Museum will house thousands of items, including a piano played by John Lennon and a Japanese "happi" coat worn by Lennon during the band's 1966 visit.

Recording equipment used by John, Paul, George and Ringo, as well as other items of Beatles-related clothing, will be featured as well. All told, more than 2,500 items of memorabilia will be on display. Read more here.
