  • A break came in to buy a gift would be full of real people. Most South Koreans and the Chinese. To calculate, there is also the difficulty in the calculation as the cashier at the South Koreans.

  • Music box in front of the only two in the world, not the steam per clock tower. Music box inside the second floor per rare and expensive music boxes. On the ground floor is a relatively inexpensive music box and sell them.

  • If you go to the Otaru must go. Soothing sounds of Nice buildings and the music box. Only foreign tourists in recent years, the Japanese feel narrow. During this time, arrived outside the steam clock out.

  • the atmosphere is very peaceful with the music boxes in the background and there is a large selection of music boxes. However they are quite expensive (I believe the cheapest one I saw was ¥4350). Neat to see given the city is known for it; but not a place to buy an affordable music box
  • More than a thousand of music box available for sales. Most of them are preloaded with classical or box office theme music, folk or festival music. It would be an ideal souvenir for a memory of a trip in Hokkaido.
  • We love the dreamy feeling inside the store. The music and decoration alone is worth the trip to the store. We bought a few cute souvenirs before we left. There is 3 level, and if you got time, I would highly recommend you come here and visit all three level, because each level sell different stuff.
  • A free music box musuem. They sell so many music box gifts and souvenirs. It's a paradise store for music box lovers. They are in cozy cabin. Don't forget steam clock in front of a shop.
  • A seemingly huge, wonderful wooden building that looks like it was used by Santa Claus and his elves. The music boxes playing all around add to the magic of the place. My inner child was completely entranced. I won't talk about my trip to Hokkaido without mentioning how great this place was.
