A museum in London devoted to renowned Japanese novelist Natsume Soseki (1867-1916), which was closed over two years ago, is set to be revived in nearby Surrey in May.

Ikuo Tsunematsu, 67, who headed the museum, decided to reopen it after receiving a flurry of requests from Soseki fans. The Soseki Museum was closed in September 2016 after 32 years of operation, due partly to financial difficulties.
