Land of over 90,000 Toys!

Children (and those young at heart) will be fascinated by the massive collection of toys from long ago and from more recent times on display at the Japan Toy Museum.

The collection is spread throughout five storehouses and an old house and there are regular special exhibitions.

Some of the toys found here are enduring symbols of Japan such as the daruma and hina dolls. The expertly curated collection has even earned a two star rating in the Michelin Travel Guide.
