小樽と言えば、オルゴールと言われるほどですが、たくさんのオルゴールを見ることができ、かつ購入することができます。昔のオルゴールも展示してあり、時間がいくらあっても足りません。 more »Speaking of Otaru, it is called a music box, but you can see a lot of music boxes and buy them. Old music boxes are also on display, and no matter how much time you have, it is not enough.
This is a great place to buy some small gift for your family and friends. They allow you to take photos, which I think it's really good. When they allow photos, it usually means that the owner is confident that their product is really good and the owner would want people to share their products online. I'm letting you know that even just walking in this building is quite fun because you get to see all these delicate music boxes.
Summary: An impossible music box museum / Japanese Swiss cottage with hand crafted everything made in Japan. Interesting that a place like this can exist with so many beautiful and skillfully crafted items in one place. 3 floors of a wood architecture cottage.
