Learn about the author's childhood, and the inspirations which went into the magical tale, as you go through the museum, seeing a recreation of his childhood bedroom and the room in which he wrote the famous story. Rest up in the onsite cafe, serving an array of French dishes with a distinctly Japanese twist. Little Prince Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • Adorable tribute to The Little Prince. Exhibits are a bit dated, but kept up quite well. A cute window into the Japanese interpretation of romanticized Frenchness.
  • Little Prince Museum is an interesting venue if you are interested in taking photos of European buildings and a big fan for the novel. English translation booklet can be borrowed at the entrance of the exhibition. Audio guides are on loan in addition to the entrance ticket price. Recommend visit time is around 1 hour.
