  • A fun display of post-war Japanese cultural artefacts, with every day places such as the barber's, the classroom etc recreated in a lot of detail. We had fun in the retro 80s games room playing Mario and King Kong and enjoyed the old pachinko machines as well. There isn't a lot of explanation and so for non Japanese natives, many references remain obscure. It would be great to create a narrative for foreign (and Japanese) visitors, to make the visit more informative.
  • I REALLY enjoyed our visit today. The museum houses an overwhelming quantity of memorabilia, historic objects & relics of days gone by. The “hands-on” for visitors is great fun. I guess the paucity of written information (in Japanese, or any other language) is a drawback, but when entry is free, and funding for such enterprises probably limited, that’s understandable.
