  • I thought, "This is all There are so few exhibits that I think it's much more substantial on the shore of Lake Shirakaba in Nagano Prefecture. Because the number of teddy bears is small, it seems to be inflated with "bear accessories" which would be helpful if it is originally. In addition, the second floor is ghibli/totoro's "special exhibition" which has been on the second floor for five years though it is a small exhibition even for free. There are also some dioramas here, just the contents that are out of the way. I was very sorry.

  • I visited the museum for cat bus purposes. Because it was GW, about five pairs lined up to buy tickets. The first floor is a teddy bear, and the second floor is the exhibition of Totoro. The first floor is quite empty and the second floor is crowded. In particular, there was a waiting line for photos on the cat bus, but there was no confusion because everyone was taking pictures. There is also a little walking slope from the station, so if you're not sure, take a taxi.

  • very remotely place . I came because kanahei event . the exhibition is too small. however the shop carry variety of goods to choose . the cafe scenario is nice .
  • Loads of adorable teddy bears ranging from 2-3 meters to 1mm in size. You can explore the whole place and take a photo op in the catbus from My Neighbor Totoro within an hour, and pick up your own Japanese-made teddy bear at the gift shop. The walk to and from the train station is absolutely magical, and the nature trail on the way is well worth taking.
