On Feb 11, 2023, my younger son and I came here again after a lapse of a few years. Out of numerous music box choices, he managed to select and buy his favourite choice. I enjoyed the museum’s relic decor and my photography.
The largest music box store in Japan with so many beautifully made music boxes comes in different shapes, colors, and sizes! The store is crowded with both local and tourist and it is located along Sakaimachi Street. The entrance to the building has a famous steam standing clock powered by the steam which produces a melody every 15 minutes. Many visitors would stand here and take photographs of the clock while waiting for the tune. The interior of the museum is very cozy and nicely decorated. Very tempting to purchase a music box but they are expensive!
