Little Prince Museum in Hakone, Japan

Hakone, Japan is part of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, less than 100 kilometers from Tokyo. Famous for hot springs, outdoor activities, natural beauty and the view of nearby Mt. Fuji, Hakone is one of the most popular destinations among Japanese and international tourists looking for a break from Tokyo.

It is also the home of The Museum of the Little Prince.

A little while ago I wrote about a "Cultural Village" in South Korea devoted to the Little Prince. Apparently, St. Exupery is pretty big in East Asia. The museum has all the usual stuff: restaurant, gift shop, stroller parking, cafe, and a chapel. The chapel is a replica of the one St. Exupery visited as a child. Kudos for attention to detail. Here's a sample of the museum map:
