“The Naval Museum in the Naval University building, near the Seiyoken Hotel, open daily except Sunday, free (the ticket received at the gate must be returned on leaving), contains an extensive and interesting collection of war trophies chiefly from Russia and China, paintings in oil of land-battles and sea-fights, relief maps of Russian forts, and a host of objects directly related to Japan’s titanic struggles for autonomy.

“The painting of Admiral Togo, on the deck of his battleship during the great sea-fight off Tsushima, is worth looking at. Upstairs there are a number of ships ‘ models and marine paraphernalia.”
