One of the best museums I’ve been to in Japan! Apart from the samurai armour (which in itself is worth the admission fee) this private collection includes ceramics, art, furniture, weapons to name a few categories. Staff were absolutely lovely, tried their best to translate the information on display, served us tea and you can try on some of the samurai helmets. Highly recommended!
Has an amazing collection of samurai armour and weapons along with many other thing. Well worth a trip.
