    I went in that Museum of unusual construction-related. You could also display can actually touch, try out and enjoy both adults and children. Children had questions to various staff, very polite to me, good value for money. The building itself, the garden, and Chair, very felt commitment. That summer, but applied experience in the 10 o'clock in the afternoon. It is better you woodworking experience, signed up as soon as possible.

    Carpentry Museum in the beautiful modern Japanese architecture 5 min from Bullet train (Shin-Kobe) station. Amazing display of 1300 year old "nail-less" method of building, which is still being practiced.

    Great museum of you're interested in Japanese tools and their history. There is a full tea house "naked" and a temple column sample.

    Gem close to Shin-Kobe station! The display of the exhibition and the house itself is worth the visit. One of the highlights of my trip in Japan, mostly because of my interest in wood!
