  • It feels like a toy from a mother-in-law age. The store is first and foremost an old-fashioned toy store. Further inside you can see the Mud Doll Chen column. A little further inside is an old toy store to pay for.

  •  Since 30 years ago for the first time visited the area had opened. It's none other than saying the well-established tourist facilities in the area. This time, I visited a long time. Appearance by utilizing the komezo and Toy Museum concept is immutable, glass gallery, new facilities have been added. Visit the Museum Shop!

  • At the back of the store's space fee. Collection its predecessor's Fund-raising is enormous. Clay exhibit was part of the kite and mask. Quantitatively and qualitatively excellent valuable content. I think I may say not to be missed if you came to Kurashiki hotel.

  • Probably you should go here with a Japanese friend. The toys look fun if you know how to play them. I came here alone and then came with a Japanese friend who made all the difference. The displays are quite complete although no English sign whatsoever.
  • I absolutely loved this museum. The owner told me that it was his and his father's personal collection. Because it's a small private museum there are few English descriptions, but there are visual displays that help to make sense of it. The thousands of paper toys inside are incredibly diverse and colourful, as much works of art as anything else. There are four rooms filled with them, among other things, and the curation and layout of the museum is top-notch. Recommended for collectors, Japanophiles, and those interested in folk art.
  • A nice little museum with a ton of dolls, figures, classic toys, games, and displays. It also has a large wooden top, which was used for a Guinness record breaking. The staff was nice and gave a description in English as well, so that we could see the entire museum (it's spread across 2 buildings, so you might miss the majority of it if you didn't know).
  • Nice wooden dolls for sell. Spent almost 15minutes here.
  • Even if your not fond of toys, the old house is interesting. Toys from old ancient regions of Japan. Japanese explanations only. But 4 rooms description in English provided.
