  • This is a wonderful, unique little museum with no charge (they won't ask for money, but please leave a donation for their amazing work!). Well worth a visit, especially with kids who may not even realize that toys without batteries ever existed. The level of cleverness in these toys is incredible.
  • #1 favorite experience in Nara. We had so much fun playing with the traditional toys. The staff was funny, engaging, and spoke excellent English. We would have stayed for hours, but wanted to be respectful of others' experience. It turned out our visit here was a great investment to our trip overall and was informative to other museum visits later. Great place for adults and kids alike.
