This is a very interesting place to visit. It gives a nice overview of the historical trade between Ayuthya and Japan. It's great to visit, especially on a rainy day, when the ruins might be harder to enjoy.

The settlement is well design, and organized. The buildings and structures are well maintainted. The japanese garden needs maintaining. Video presentations are simple but adequate. The artifacts are well presented and the staffs need to improve their knowledge in history of the area.

The museum is really interesting from the point of view that it explains really well the reasons why the Japanese were there in the first place and the history behind their leaving but the gardens (Japanese style) really need more upkeep.

Situated on the small country road from Ayutthaya to Bang-Pa-In Palace, this place seems to have undergone recent restoration. Everything looks pretty new. Admission 50 Baht. There is a beautiful Japanese garden/park. Two museum buildings give an insight into Ayutthaya's importance at the time. In...More

This museum is mainly a collection of reading panels which are very heavy on historical detail about Japan-Thai relations, but which don't tell you much about the Japanese settlement itself. I didn't find it particularly informative. It's also quite out of the way, so I...More
