I enjoyed this place

I like this place. It's serene and really cute. Another view of Mt. Fuji and stuff. They have the organ show which was definitely creepy, but it was cool... but just creepy to me... read more

Only a Japanese could have the idea of creating a museum of (mostly European) automated musical instruments in the middle of the scenic Mt. Fuji tourist area. The German and Swiss style castles are a bit corny but the collection itself is impressive and the gardens are beautiful by the lake. Entrance is quite expensive.

The place appears to be quite popular among locals. It was raining on my day of visit, and still the place was crowded. This is perhaps because the place is not very large. The buildings are European in style, commonly found in Europe, but perhaps not so many in Japan. The ancient musical organs and instruments on display are quite... More

It is one the sightseeing places near Kawaguchiko lake. The lake upon exit has a good Mt Fuji view. Me and my families didn't attend any of the concerts but it is included in the entrance fee. The trip was very relaxing but unfortunately our timing was off as the flowers haven't bloomed yet. But I would recommend this place... More

We paid 1500 yen to enter and the whole place stunk and the water had been drained so it wasnt nice to even look around. Some of the buildings were interesting and some okay things to look at but super expensive for something that was a serious let down. The vibe was depressing and hardly fun.. should have asked for...

This museum is worth the time and the price to visit. It may look expensive the entrance fee, but I forgot about paying when I saw the beautiful mini village. Even without paying, before the entrace, the garden is so adorable. I forgot I was in Yamanashi. The place may be small, but it is a fairy tale for the... More

Didn't really enjoy it. Found it quite boring. The place looks quite old and small. Definitely didn't worth 1600 yen. The glass museum in hakone is way way more entertaining.

Wasn't expecting much. Just went because the gf wanted to go. But the automatic organs and the sand show was really unique. Also a nice free gift (glass candle holder) after collecting seven stickers from seven employees. Nice views of Mt Fuji and had a restaurant in addition to a cafe! Definitely worth the trip!

Beautiful park with focus on music. And music boxes. Reserve time to see the performances. Kids will love this too.

Must go earlier so that you get to see more performances in the museum. We reached there around 3pm, so we only have less than 3 hours to visit the place. Everything is cute and beautiful inside~
