Owner description: Yamanashi had many crystal mines in the past. Even today, much jewelry is produced here using polishing and processing techniques handed down over the generations. Our museum opened in 1975 to showcase Yamanashi's jewelry industry and to teach a wide audience all about gems.

“Beautiful gems”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Nestled in a cozy section of Kawaguchiko with an easy view of Mount Fuji. Easy access to Saiko via an inexpensive train for tourists. The locals are so nice and helpful. Great shops in the area and lockers for your things if you plan to climb Mount Fuji.
