Kawaguchiko Music Forest Museum

Kawaguchiko Music Forest Museum

A pristine garden and museum which is home to a wealth of priceless music boxes and mechanical musical instruments from around the world. The Kawaguchiko Music Forest Museum houses incredible pieces of musical history, like a Dance Organ which was actually supposed to be loaded onto the Titanic. The organ never made it on to the ship and it can be seen today in this museum. This instrument is called a Dance Organ because it was designed for use in a ballroom. There are must-see shows at the museum. Don’t miss the live sand art storytelling music performance and the collaboration between opera singers and automatic music machines.

Oishi-Tsumugi Silk Traditional Workshop

The traditional methods for hand spinning silk passed down from hundreds of years ago are still used today in this workshop near Lake Kawaguchiko. The pongee (soft, thin cloth made from raw silk) made here is officially recognized by Yamanashi Prefecture as an important local craft product. This workshop allows you to try your hand at transforming the color of a handkerchief using traditional plant-sourced dyes.

This museum is a singular experience and has been awarded Three Stars by the Michelin Guide. Mr. Itchiku Kubota built this museum in 1994 as a location to display his own works on a permanent basis.

In 2019, the collection entitled Kokyo was returned to display in the museum after 3 years.
