Japanese Rural Toy Museum (日本郷土玩具館)

3.5

Museum / Science Museum

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. Although an entry fee is required for the main building, one of the galleries inside a former inner storehouse, the museum shop, and café are free to enter.

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...

          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.
