The emblem of the Japanese national soccer team: a mythical crow with three legs
At Japan Football Museum(Soccer Museum) in Bunkyo ward in Tokyo, visitors can learn about Japan's history of soccer by seeing documents, pictures and various displays, for example, old uniforms. It was founded one year after the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan. At the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games, Japan defeated Sweden by 3-2. It's a legendary miracle. At the 1968 Mexico Olympic Games, Japan won a blonze medal. After the Japan Professional Footbal League kicked off in 1993, the level of Japan's football has improved. Since the 1998 France World Cup, Japan has participated in the tournament for five consecutive games. In 2011, Women's Japan National team won a World Cup. Japanese soccer fans are raising their expectations toward the 2018 Russia World Cup that Japan team has great success. This museum is close to Ueno Park or the destination of my tour, Kyu-Iwasaki Tei Teien.
