Today, 54 years back in time, Yuri Gagarin became the first human to travel into space. Here are some rather rare photos from his visit to Japan later on (less famous than this one, anyway).

It’s a pity that such a legend and a role model for half of the world can be almost  unknown for the other half of the planet just because of some stupid political stuff.
