  • The stone beads that you get at the time, are all pieces of handated in the pearl shop, but in the Yamanashi Stone Museum, in one display, you can not only get to the finished product of the stone, but also show the original stone, which is eye-opening.

  • For fans of the ring rock it is advisable to visit the Museum which is not too far from Kawaguchiko station. The collection of gemstones here is very diverse so it gives many options for fans and stone collectors to choose the type of gemstone that will be the next collection. The staffs are also very friendly to tourists by providing a complete explanation of the types of gemstones.

  • Very well done museum, though relatively small and the price is a little high. Gems are nicely exhibited in rough, polished, and set forms with information and organization based on chemical composition. Most presentation boxes are clear, clean, and well lit from a dedicated light directly above, with signs in Japanese and English. Large quartz (translated as "rock crystal”) and amethyst clusters are displayed directly. Not much info on crystal structures, as at other similar museums. The gift shop, which is free to access, also has some impressive elements in its collection, including a variety of (what they claim are) real quartz crystal balls. There may be 100 yen discount (600 -> 500) coupons available at the train station tourist info areas or other tourist spots.
  • Interesting enough although not worth making a special trip to see
