Waseda University The Tsubouchi Memorial Theatre Museum (早稲田大学演劇博物館)

Houses a world-class collection of images and materials on theatre. It is also known by its nickname, Enpaku. The museum was founded in 1928 to commemorate the more than wonderful 70 years life and 40 volumes of Shakespeare translation of Shōyō Tsubouchi, a novelist, translator, playwright and professor at Waseda University (1859-1935). The collection boasts hundreds of thousands of pieces including woodblock prints, photographs of performances, publications, costumes and dolls. The museum has regular and special exhibitions, events and lectures. Its willingness to make its materials available has also allowed many people to contribute to its research. It is located on the campus of Waseda University in Nishi-Waseda, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo. It has a detailed home page and electronic catalog.
