Beautiful and distinctive dolls by Yūki ATAE

  • Entertainment

This museum is located in Yagisaki park on the southern shore of lake Kawaguchi and displays works of Yūki ATAE, one of the most prominent Japanese doll artists. He developed his own doll-making technique by incorporating a method to make mannequin he learned through his work in his earlier age. Visitors here will appreciate exquisite pieces of art work, from the detailed facial expression of the dolls to the wrinkles of their clothes and will be immersed in Mr. Atae’s unique world. Unfortunately, it is not allowed to take photos inside the exhibition halls but pictures will surely stay in your memories. The museum has received two stars in the Michelin Green Guide Japon. It is also nice to take a walk in Yagisaki park along lake Kawaguchi. The park is filled with lavender flowers from late June to mid-July.

There are three exhibition halls in the museum. Two of them house Mr. Atae’s masterpieces and another is used for special temporary exhibition. It also has a souvenir shop and a tea room with a nice view.

The facility is barrier-free. The entrance is 600 yen. Business hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, entry before 4:30 pm. 10 minutes bus ride from Kawaguchiko station.
