    Only one small room but many beautiful kaleidoscopes to look through. As some are quite delicate, bags must be put in a locker. Photos not allowed. Small cafe & shop. Well worth Y300.  more »

    Excellent small place, great break from being over templed! Great exhibits, interaction with all of them is possible and the staff are top notch in helping you when confusion ensues. At the end of the tour there's a great presentation when the lights are dimmed and kaleidoscopes are beamed onto the walls, very relaxing. Superb options at the end too, kaleidoscopes available for purchase to suit any budget and an opportunity to make your own!

    This place is tiny, maybe spend 15 minutes here!!! That being said, it is the only kaleidoscope museum anywhere, so if you like kaleidoscopes, come here. I think this museum would be better as an exhibit in a larger museum, rather than being a stand alone museum.

    If you like kaleidoscopes, this museum is a must. Such beautiful kaleidoscopes! And a spectacular light show, too.

    Stunningly beautiful! More than worth the money (300 Yen per person). It is small but we spent more than 1,5 hours in there.

    Kids loved it - so did adults. Lots of fun Kaleidoscopes and then kids made their own too!

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
