Naramachi Karakuri Omocha Kan The Inside of The Museum

Naramachi Karakuri Omocha Kan is a museum where visitors can see and play with traditional toys open in Naramachi in 2012. The museum was built as a cottage separate from the main building of an eel restaurant in 1890.

The museum holds more than 600 toys that that were restored to around the 18th century's ones. About 20 toys are exhibited at a time and they are rotated in every 2 months to show up.

Volunteers are working in the museum and they kindly teach how to play with the toys that have no butteries and no power codes. Visitors from children to adults can definitely enjoy the experiences in there.
