Great news: the hide museum will be back!



Two years after hide’s death (year 2000) the prime minister of Japan, Koizumi Junichiro, established a memorial museum for hide. He was a big X-Japan-fan himself!

The museum was opened in Hide’s hometown, near the ocean line. In that museum, you could see a lot of hide’s belongings from his guitars, his clothes, music and movie collections, things he had collected from all around the world. You could even see his car.

The museum was unfortunately closed on September 25, 2005. Probably by financial reasons.

This made a LOT of fans dissapointed – me included.

But here are the great news: hide MUSEUM will be revived!

And it will be held in Tokyo and Osaka!!

Information from hidecity:

First opened in hide’s birthplace, Yokosuka, from the years 2000 to 2005, “hide MUSEUM” which drew 450,000 people will be revived in two cities, Tokyo and Osaka, after eight years!

  1. Hi. Is there a way to contact the museum? I have been looking for an email but cannot find.. I recently came across two master copies of Hide’s work done with Zilch which I found at an estate sale in Los Angeles. I figured I’d try and reach out to the museum before auctioning on eBay.. Thank you!
