FUKUOKA (Kyodo) A gallery for Elvis Presley fans recently opened in Hakata Ward, Fukuoka, exhibiting his records, posters and other memorabilia.

Salon Elvis, displaying more than 1,000 items, including a rare stuffed animal of a dog that Presley gave to music critic Reiko Yukawa, is dedicated to the legendary U.S. rock icon known as “The King.”

“This is a place where you can listen to Elvis music and chill out. I hope people will drop by,” operator Shinichi Takeda said.

The gallery will be open through September 2011.
