  • It was very spacious. It was so cute in a variety of music box and there is a combination of the orthodox ones from the unusual music box.

  • There are indeed a variety of music boxes, so everyone plays the music box and listen to them, so what are the drawbacks that you have to ask in your ear? There is a tune which I think that it was such a title by wrapping the screw, and oh. Even if you know the melody, you may not know the title.

  • What a fantastic museum. If you like music boxes, even just a little, this place will amaze you. I sure was. music box pieces from a dollar all the up into the 10's of thousands. I was thinking it would not be worth the trip from Sapporo....glad i was wrong. I suggest going right at evening because after you step out of the museum you see the beautiful small town lights all around. A beautiful winter costal town.
  • Splendid place with tons of tourists! I personally liked the second floor. Staffs are very friendly.
