Nosaka Automata Museum野坂オートマタ美術館

Art Museum

The Nosaka Automata Museum is an art museum located in Yawatano, Ito City, Shizuoka Prefecture, which stores and displays antique ‘automata’ dolls that can move by mechanical means. Automata produced by European watch makers in the 18th and 19th centuries are works of art that use one spring as its driving force without using any electrical power. In addition to the exhibition of a number of valuable automata that would have attracted aristocrats of the day, there is also a corner which shows, several times a day, the automata in action.

一度行っていたいと思っていて今回伺いました。わんこは入れません。あと建物にエレベーターはなく 車いすでは実演ショーのみ見学できます。人形は4段の階段の上がる中二階に数体とその先の2階へ上る階段があり車いすでは見学不可能です。トイレは車いす対応トイレがあります。実演ショーは人形は4体あり時間は20分程度を見学しました。面白かったです。そういう美術館ですので車いすのわたしからは料金を取りませんでした...

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
