  • Kawaguchiko Music Box Forest Museum ⛲️ the fountain outside the Kalion Square, you can see the fountain show at the very time to coincide with the melody! If the weather is good, you can see Mt. Fuji and look at the scenic spot Instagram. At the Music Box Museum, you can listen to the world's most precious harmony of the 100-year-old automatic instrument, and there are also collaborations with opera singers! There seems to be a lunchtime concert, too!

  • I felt that the entrance fee was 1800 yen a little higher, but the garden is very beautifully maintained, and there are many shows such as opera singer concerts and live music live, so you can get a good touch of art. However, most of them are Asian tourists, so I felt that they needed to devise a way to make the show content understandable and enjoyable.

  • Need to pay an entrance fee to enter. There are lockers to store your luggage as well, of course for a fee as well. You can have a meal at the cafe. Or do a quick shopping at their shops. There are some nice musical boxes for sales, with prices ranging from US$20 to thousands of dollars. There are different timings for various shows. All the shows are well-scheduled such that visitors can enjoy all the shows.
  • Small but very cute place filled with automatic music players.. Recommend getting the coupon from bus stop for 200¥ off. You can rent dresses and feel like a princess inside this little fairy tale place. Though very cute, seemed like it was more for money than music...
