  • This is suitable for Music City (Yamaha and Kawai Hamamatsu originated) rich. Southeast Asian musical instruments that work of art itself. Cutaway in the corner of the piano, you know how to put the piano sound. Admission fee is 800 yen for free earphones I think, not more.

  • On the first floor and basement has become a Museum, pretty spacious, so slowly and look around, time becomes necessary. JAF card, card holder only with 20% discount. Beside the Museum entrance could enjoy and experience the Museum souvenir shop and sell a very cute toy.

  • The museum is very close to the station and has luggage storage (but you can also leave them in the storage at the station as well). The place is nice and well taken care of. Full with various kinds of musical instruments from around the world. And I do mean around the world. You can even listen to the sounds the instruments make from recordings. Staff here are very friendly and helpful although we do not speak much Japanese.
  • Nice.. be careful yo may want to buy a musical instrument shortly afterward. Try the play room, there are musical instruments you can really touch when you feel desperately want to play..
  • We were in town for a weekend and noticed that we had not been to this attraction before. Being close to Act Tower, it was really easy to get to. When inside, we were treated to a history of how music is and was made around the world. It will only take you about an hour, but the collection is cool and extensive.
  • Lots of musical instruments and listening recorded music facility available.
  • Excellent museum for music! It's worth it. It was really stunned by the presentation.
