We initially came here because we thought it sounded interesting, at the gates we noticed the price being 1500 yen each, quite high in comparison to many other attractions we've been to in Japan. So, we looked it up on Trip Advisor, mostly good reviews......More

Consider that this town has nothing except the magnificent view of Fujisan. So around the lake where you can see Fujisan they need to construct something. Something for people to visit and have nice corners for photo. This place is more on the music boxes....More

I have never been to a place like this before so the first I visited here I felt too happy lol. It's majorly exhibiting the old-fashioned yet classic European music instruments. The museum looks cute tho.

The place appears to be quite popular among locals. It was raining on my day of visit, and still the place was crowded. This is perhaps because the place is not very large. The buildings are European in style, commonly found in Europe, but perhaps...More
