it's a museum/shop where you can see (for free) all the glass musical boxes. There are 3 floors to look around. All of the things on display are for sale as noted by their price tags (and they're quite expensive). Definitely unique, as I have yet to see these kinds of things anywhere else in Japan.

Must go visit these shops. Otaru is famous in glassware and in these shops you see them all. The price range is from a few thousand yen to a lot more expensive. Those sake and shoujiu glass bottles were just pieces of art.

I think I've found heaven.... most beautiful collection of glassware since my trip to Venice 2 years ago -- in fact, Otaru and Venice are very much linked together -- there is a Venetian store and museum there as well. I will say that the only negative was that they do not ship to the USA so whatever you get... More
