Last weekend, I went to the John Lennon Museum in Saitama.

On entering, you are shown a fascinating documentary of his life. Following this, you then walk through various different zones which chart his life from an early age in Liverpool, through to his success in The Beatles and finally to his solo career and death in New York.

It's definitely worth going to and you get to see lots of interesting things like books from when he was at school, original lyrics, clothes and musical instruments. There's also some artwork by Yoko Ono which includes a phone, which apparently she occasionally rings to talk to people in the museum.

He's definitely my favourite Beatle, if only for the sheer fact he never did anything as bad as 'The Frog Chorus'.

The official site for the John Lennon museum is
