  • Small and curious Museum which displays a collection of phonographs and gramophones, visited only because I've been there before, has no major specialties at least for me that I'm not a fan of the genre. Ticket of 300 Yen, from 10 to 17. If you go walking to Chaya-gai found after the bridge on the right.

  • To enjoy music as well as record the CD is of course it is, but it isn't! The phonograph! And no electricity! And will revives a world record memories from distant memories. By Gramophone sound atmosphere is different and different fiddle as Chrysler, the listening position is different, fun world. 1 held 3 times thermal sound machine music compared to here.

  • Small Museum of niche, very interesting, with demonstration of sound and informed staff explanations. Extraordinary welcome by passionate people. Impressive collection of phonographs.

  • This was a nice spot to step out of the rain. Hard for me to fully understand...most parts of the museum and it is somewhat short. All in all I enjoyedy time. Inexpensive to go in. Relaxed time checking out antigue phonographs and the beginning has a spot where you could listen to record for a bit.
  • So many phonograph models.. Arrived just in time to hear the talk about the history of phonographs and vinyls. There was an English guide with pictures so it was possible to understand the talk even though it was in Japanese. There was also a vinyl library for us to listen to vinyls (on contemporary machines of course, complete with headphones).
  • If you're into the history of recorded music, this is a must. This privately acquired collection of phonographs from all over the world is incredible and the museum staff are well informed and passionate about the exhibits.
  • Listened to Coltrain and relaxed, was fantastic!
  • It is a great collection. On day one of the maybe owners, actually over the vinyl records on the phonograph, is (easy to understand explanation) will ring. We had grown accustomed to clear music CDs and digital music sources will arise from this phonograph needles and a crackling noise and reality, rather, you can hear the breathing of the singers and musicians.

Where to stay in Kanazawa

The well-preserved castle town of Kanazawa has a good range of accommodations, with the most popular among them sitting in tall modern blocks overlooking the historical areas of town, or the more commercial parts. Look to the west of the castle grounds for some particularly well-positioned options, offering urban views, spas, pools, and restaurants. North-west from here, close to the main train station, you'll find a good selection of slightly simpler options in tall blocks, while the residential districts across the city house simple guesthouses and the odd hostel.
