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).

There are coin lockers with 100 yen deposits at the museum but they are too small to fit suitcases...maybe backpacks and smaller bags only. I would suggest checking the coin lockers at the nearest JR train station as they... More
