  • The place has stopped every time I go to Lake Kawaguchi. Ever had visited only in adults, but this time with toddlers. Do not recommend winter which I visited. Was watching for violin, piano and sound art raw performance in the Hall. The Hall seats for an audience to the Gallery after another. People never want to sit should be opened with room to spare. 10 minutes in before about filled to the brim. The little short performances even better? I think much too long. If you go to the month of roses, roses in the garden to enjoy. There are some instruments sound in the nursery school's grounds. Bell and drum? The wind chimes. Such as. Restaurant in the Park is not suitable for children. Dinner menu for children without such children received food, too much, my child had eaten only bread with pasta. Indeed, this bread is delicious.

  • Probably one of the most Beautiful place in Japan with Mount Fuji view. However the clouds were blocking our Fuji view the whole day.. if you are lucky, definitely you will see it! This place is filled with lively instrumental music that makes you feel like you are in a Europe country. Totally amazing place here that gives you both a short Europe holiday feel, + Japan! It's a really short drive from fujiyoshida area. If it's your birthday, do show them your passport/ID and get free entry!!
  • I did not know about this place before arriving at Lake Kawaguchiko. It is a museum about music, with automatic instruments (mainly from Europe). It is not a traditional japanese experience, but it was completely worth it. There are some shows/presentations happening. The drawing in the sand was mesmerizing!
  • if you come Kawaguchiko, you should not skip this place. Need to attend all activities. very impress.
  • Nice place. Interesting for kids. Can take photos with costumes.
  • Not at all what I was expecting. Definitely a trip to the past, a while museum dedicated to olde-world music boxes and automated instruments. Some of the exhibitions are impressive in both the detail in their construction and their sheer size. The forefather of the CD was in no way compact...

Where to stay in Fujikawaguchiko-machi

The lakeside resort town of Fujikawaguchiko-machi offers a great variety accommodations, reflective of the diverse reasons people have for visiting the town. Some simple guesthouses and hostels dot the more modest streets of the main urban areas, while more upmarket, resort-style hotels with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) are located close to the lake, or sit in privileged positions just out of town. Campsites and inns in the surrounding rural areas provide particularly good options for those just wanting to get up Mount Fuji.
