Located in the center of the Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter, this museum dedicated to toys is housed inside an Edo period rice granary. Countless time-honored Japanese toys from around the country are on display, including traditional toys, Daruma dolls, and hina dolls.

A small museum, but filled with antique Japanese toys, masks, kites, dolls and other pieces. The first room is filled with examples from all over Japan; the other rooms across the small courtyard...

          Okayama Main Areas


          Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
