The kimonos on display are really beautiful but if you are here on a day trip with limited budget, I'd skip this. We were out of here in 30 minutes and we felt it was too expensive for what it is.

There are lots of museums and attractions around lake Kawaguchiko, but this is the one I would recommend to see. The building itself is a unique work of art, and that's to say nothing of how beautiful the kimono inside are. The optional bead museum...More

Our group came mainly for the park, bathed in autumn colors. We were not disappointed. The old woodwork, see the door, is admirable.

This is certainly a one-off art museum...and should be a priority to see (even if you only have one day in the area). And the tea-room is something else!!

A lovely classy walk around place in Fujikawaguchiko. It's really very picturesque surrounding. The beautiful trees give the romantic walk. On the top, you will have a great view of Fuji san.

We loved the Itchiku Kubota Art Museum. It was slightly difficult to find, given the location (which was slightly further than the bus stop). It was worth the trip to Lake Kawaguchiko. The art was so beautiful and the architecture was perfect! We were also...More

It was a rainny day so we decided to try a museum, this might have some few gardens but the colection itself is quite small, you can see all in 10 min and the entrance fee is 1300¥ 😱
