  • You can also make you feel relaxed and enjoy the taste of Japan. Foliage in your garden, suitable for walking. Easy to reach the city and visit.

  • Country registration tangible cultural property in designated main (Chapter 7-9 exhibition) is currently seismic construction (will: until the end of 1/2017) so maybe better buildings appreciate fans who considered visits. That for visited my own knowing that seismic construction 6 exhibition from the new building corridors to the Auditorium building with views of [Green Glazed tile: the Green shachi decorated roofs and roof able to watch. It is also use as exhibits exhibits in the main encounter library and the new building and have exhibited. Impressed most in the exhibit is the 4th exhibition room (theme: Lords of Navigator) was "treasure, hatsune Makie Observatory, writing box with (Unzen hospital thousands of Owari House 2 mitsutomo wife, teen Princess business, not allowed to take pictures)" in truly, daughter of the third Shogun, Iemitsu brought during their marriage married Princess Chiyo furnishings are beautiful and in one word, we recommend listening to. And the Black Gate is 0/1900 (1900) escaped destruction by bombing 0/1945 (1945) in the ruins of the mansion of Owari-Tokugawa family built buildings recommended building watching fans.

  • This museum is a treasure trove of items from the Tokugawa Shogunate and before. The organization is a bit odd, but you'll learn a lot, especially about Noh Theatre and the Tale of Genji scrolls
  • Some good pieces but not enough explanations translated. Take the combo ticket with the garden for a pleasant walk.
  • It may be a small museum, but it has some very nice pieces belonging to the Owari branch of the Tokugawa.
  • Excellent museum with very interesting exhibits, and a wonderful garden
  • Really disappointing. 1200¥ for a museum as boring as the living room of my granny. It has some interesting objects. But the presentation is boring. For non-japanese visitors many of the objects shown, keep their secret because there's no explanation what it is and what it was used for. For example there is this great armor, but neither materials nor symbolism of this piece of craftsmanship are explained. Wikipedia would have taught me more.
