Fabulous collection of dolls from every part of the world for all ages. There is a large Sylvanian collection which is popular with children. My onlycomplaint is that most of the information is in Japanese.

I found it by chance and I decided to spend sometime in it... it turned to be pretty interesting to watch so many kinds of dolls from all over the world and see the differences... There is also a room full of gacha-gacha (capsule machines).
