Established in 1995, Saka Biscuit is a famous biscuit brand which is well-known to people in Hokkaido. Next to the head office and the factory, there is a private museum Retro Space Saka. A director of Saka Biscuit and an owner of the museum, Mr. Kazutaka Saka has a motto “not spending money”. One day he picked up a mannequin in a trash station. Since then, he started collecting random stuff from the Showa period, and plenty of erotica. After amassing a huge collection over many decades, he decided to house them all in one place and open it for public viewing.
“There’s an entire corner under the stairs with nothing but panties on display, right next to the wall of Showa era nudes. But it’s not all rope and boobs here. There’s a treasure trove of old packaging and random antiques to appreciate. As you tiptoe through the narrow, orange-tiled walkways, you’re never sure what you’ll find around the next corner” – source
