  • very remotely place . I came because kanahei event . the exhibition is too small. however the shop carry variety of goods to choose . the cafe scenario is nice .
  • Loads of adorable teddy bears ranging from 2-3 meters to 1mm in size. You can explore the whole place and take a photo op in the catbus from My Neighbor Totoro within an hour, and pick up your own Japanese-made teddy bear at the gift shop. The walk to and from the train station is absolutely magical, and the nature trail on the way is well worth taking.
  • Well designed museum with a gift shop and a restaurant attached. Exhibits are well thought out, although explanations are mostly in Japanese.
  • Must visit for Totoro fans
  • If you are not big fan of teddy bear you can just stop by the museum shop. The ticket costs 1080 yen but the museum is only 2 floors and I finished in 10 minutes.
