This was a late addition to our itinerary as we thought it was going to rain. Together with the gardens (see other review) it turned out to be the highlight of our day. The museum has some amazing exhibits from the Tokugawa period and they are mostly in extraordinary condition. It is easy to imagine a samurai striding through the village in these intricate and dramatic looking outfits. There are also some original art works and pages from the Tale of Genji - written in the 11th century and of enormous significance in Japan. Again, this was unexpected and a real treat. The museum itself is in immaculate condition and very well maintained, with lots of English translations. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
