That good feeling knowing even quaint space. and if there is the Takenaka carpentry tools Museum. Museum magnificence of Carpenter's stunning technology with Japanese production seen at the touch. It is reminiscent of good would be born with the pride to make of them and experience the splendor came here recently said fewer young people to engage in the production, to produce the great Carpenter and Museum.

  • English speakers fear not. They have headphones for you. Explanations is clear and detailed. If you listen to all of it, and try out every exhibit that they allow, give yourself 2 hours for the tour. ...  more »

  • 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!
  • Fantastic museum! So much information which is all displayed beautifully. And the entrance fee is very reasonable. Excellent English guide that is both audio and visual on a little iPad which is free to rent for your visit. A very relaxing setting too, make time to just sit upstairs and look out at the garden. My favorite part was the partially constructed teahouse. This is one of the best museums I've seen in Japan.
