Toyota City Museum of Local History

Today I went to Toyota City to have a look at the ... no, not the automobile museum, but the museum of local history.

On my way from the Shintoyota station I came across a small shrine.

Unfortunately, one wasn't allowed to take pictures inside, so all you can see are the exterior of the museum and the Kofun which was brought from Nomiyama in 1967 and re-erected on museum's grounds.

The Kofun chamber:

Can you see how embarrassed the cute little dog is about the dog poo? And how happy a Japanese child cleans up behing it? How well behaved Japanese children are in contrast to European ones :)
