    Ibaraki Pref. Hitachishi Miyatachou 5-2-25
    "A museum memorializing composer Tadashi Yoshida located a seven-minute taxi ride from Hitachi Station on the JR Joban Line. Yoshida created some 2,400 songs, like hits such as ""Kino mo kyo mo,"" the Japan Record Award-winning ""Dare yori mo kimi wo aisu,"" and ""Itsudemo yume wo."" Facilities include exhibits on the composer's life, displays containing the record jackets of his songs, and a video theater. There's also a corner where visitors can try making their own song and a quiet cafe on an upper floor with a view. In addition, visitors can borrow a music player and listen to the composer's hits."

    かみね公園の正面を通り過ぎた先を左折して公園の最上部まで登り、左手にちょっと走ると記念館に出ます。駐車場はかなり広いです。カフェは記念館の最上階にあり、太平洋が一望できます。市街や山側の景色もなかなか良いです。カフェは静かで、時間を忘れて過ごせます。

    Ibaraki Pref. Tsukubamiraishi Kamihirayanagi 64

    我が家から、車で20分弱。 国道6号から小貝川沿いに堤防上狭い1.5車線の道を進み、堤防下に下りるとすぐこの記念館がある。建物自身が生家を再建した簡素な木造で、展示品も少ないが、 間宮海峡等樺太探検の歴史的偉業を感じるには十分な記念館であった。
