This is a very peculiar museum in the Bikan Historical Quarter, paying homage to folklore sweetheart Momotarou.

We needed to get out of the rain so popped in to this very Japanese "museum". Others have said it is aimed at children, but there seemed to be plenty of people of all ages getting a good deal,of mirth out of it. I now have 2 treasured pictures of both my husband and our tour guide appearing (head only!)... More

In this museum you can view several Momotaro-themed visual illusions. We thought most were hilarious and great fun, but they were clearly aimed towards children. It's worth visiting if you have time to spare and want to see an edible flute.
