  • Probably you should go here with a Japanese friend. The toys look fun if you know how to play them. I came here alone and then came with a Japanese friend who made all the difference. The displays are quite complete although no English sign whatsoever.
  • I absolutely loved this museum. The owner told me that it was his and his father's personal collection. Because it's a small private museum there are few English descriptions, but there are visual displays that help to make sense of it. The thousands of paper toys inside are incredibly diverse and colourful, as much works of art as anything else. There are four rooms filled with them, among other things, and the curation and layout of the museum is top-notch. Recommended for collectors, Japanophiles, and those interested in folk art.
