  • Need to pay an entrance fee to enter. There are lockers to store your luggage as well, of course for a fee as well. You can have a meal at the cafe. Or do a quick shopping at their shops. There are some nice musical boxes for sales, with prices ranging from US$20 to thousands of dollars. There are different timings for various shows. All the shows are well-scheduled such that visitors can enjoy all the shows.
  • Small but very cute place filled with automatic music players.. Recommend getting the coupon from bus stop for 200¥ off. You can rent dresses and feel like a princess inside this little fairy tale place. Though very cute, seemed like it was more for money than music...
