  • Because it was not possible to do the sightseeing outside because of rain, it was here that I chose to go to a museum somewhere. To be honest, I didn't expect much, but i was betrayed in a good way. Admission is expensive, but i think adults can have a day. The best part was sand art! I've seen it through the TV screen, but what I see here was great. The music was also very powerful with live music. Later, i was able to take a commemorative photo with the artist, so I took it as a memory. These performances can be seen all day long, so i think you can spend the day here alone. It was very nice to be able to borrow an umbrella in the rain!

  • LOCATED IN THE KAWAGUCHI-KO MUSIC FOREST SOUND MUSIC IN THE ESTUARY LAKE, THE MAIN TOPIC IS THE SOUND, EXHIBITING A NUMBER OF AUDIO BOXES, AND SCHEDULED TO HAVE A SOUND SHOW. Surrounded by beautiful environment, with a style of building, but also overlooking Mount Fuji, it is worth paying a fee.

  • 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...
