Antique Toy Museum at Lake Kawaguchiko

  • Sightseeing

This museum exhibits and sells toys and nostalgic items at the lakeside of lake Kawaguchiko.

Mr. Kitahara is a famous personality for his toy collection and often appears in popular TV programs as an antique toy connoisseur. You can see an important part of his collection at the lake Kawaguchi Kitahara museum. If you like old-fashioned toys, this is a good place to drop by on the occasion of a visit to Mt. Fuji area.

More than 4,000 items, gathered mainly from Japan and partly from abroad, are displayed in several rooms arranged for each theme: boy’s collection, girl’s collection and music. In the girl’s collection, I was surprised by a big Barbie doll, the size of a human being.

Special exhibitions are held throughout the year too so check the schedule beforehand.

An intricate graffiti by artist Nobumasa TAKAHASHI is amazing. He drew directly on the white wall of a staircase in the building.

You can buy some retro toys and original goods at the entrance shop after the tour of the museum.

Opening hours: 9:00-17:00, 10:00-16:00 on weekday from December 1 to March 19
Closed: Open Everyday
Price: ¥800 (JPY / adult and high school student), ¥400 (JPY / junior high and elementary school student)
