  • It was not easy to find, but it was worth wile searching for! Nicely done and lovely presented the different ways in a miniature puppet way and some original sizes Kimono styles.  more »
  • Bill here and hesitate a moment at the entrance of the building. And opened the door and went inside and costume Museum signage, while relieved goes up on the fifth floor with elevator (lift). There's a world of tale of Genji picture scroll. The instruments have been used in Shinto shrine? The current anthem was played in the background music is. The life-size dolls and miniature dolls. They reckoned the diorama making, taketori-Monogatari as dolls, have been reproduced. West honganji Temple and also visit the best walk, incidentally, Kyoto Railway Museum located approximately 20 minutes.

  • The museum is currently CLOSED! It's on break until February 03rd 2019 because of a change in exhibition. Please be mindful of this when visiting and don't stand front of a closed door like me. The rating can be ignored as I didn't actually see the museum...
  • It’s a small “museum” or rather an large exhibition room with amazing miniature display of models of Heian palace based on The Tale of Genji. Highly recommended! It’s located a crossed the street from a great temple, where transportation is very convenient. Check it out—but notice it’s hidden in a building so you may need to used google map or other kinds of guide and then look around a bit. I had a lot of fun there! Great photo reference for artists too.
