  • Excellent historical displays. Even better as we had one of the senior curators providing a personal explanation and demonstration to our tour group
  • 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!
  • Mind blowing. The building itself is worth the entry fee
