  • I didn’t find this museum very interesting. But for only 300 yen it’s not bad. Only 30 minutes is enough time.

  • It has a small garden with a fountain.You have to pay to view inside the building. However the gift shop and the tea shop you can go in for free.
  • This was a nice small museum of the former British Consulate. You can walk around the building and its garden for free, and you have to pay to view inside the building. However, the gift shop and the tea shop you can go in for free. The tea shop is a nice place to unwind for a cuppa, but I can't say I enjoyed their chocolate cake.
