As a car enthusiast and fan of Initial D, I have known about the Ikaho Toy, Doll, and Car Museum for quite some time. However, besides the sizeable Initial D presence from both the exhibit and the gift shop I was pleasantly surprised by the huge collection of cars throughout. They did a pretty good job of marketing the large collection of classis Minis which is good fun to walk through, but there are two other full floors of cars with the Initial D exhibit only taking up a small area. The museum is definitely worth it from a car enthusiast perspective regardless.

That said, the rest of the museum was very cool as well - parts of it feel like an old Japanese street in the 50's, then turn the corner and you're welcomed by 1980's and 1990's video games. It's quite the range! They do force you through a particular path in this museum and you will end up going through 4 or 5 different gift shops by the time you get to the end.

The museum is quite ‘wild and whacky’ as you enter. The proprietor clearly has a sense of fun. The toy and doll sections are interesting but my main reason for visiting was the classic Japanese car exhibits. These cover three floors and are really impressive. The Toyota GT 2000 is the star of the show but there are several early Skyline’s and Z models plus lots of rarities you would be unlikely to see in Europe.
We did it as a day trip from Tokyo. 1.5 hr train from Ueno to Shibukawa (within JR rail pass zone) then 16 minute bus ride (460 Y pp single fare) which drops you right outside. Simple cafe with small selection of food and drinks. Nothing else obvious in the surrounding area. Lockers for 100 Y were handy for leaving our bags.
If you’re interested in older Japanese cars then I recommend it.

まあ正直、コレクターの所有物をただただ延々と見せつけられている、という感じがした。昭和レトロな広告や駄菓子、昭和のアイドルなどから人形、小動物園、飲料、車。まとまりがなく、体験できるという感じでもなく、とにかく見るだけ。1000円は高いという感じがした。有料で遊べるスマートボールや射的等があるだけなので、子供は楽しいのかな?

I felt that the entrance fee for 1000 yen was high to see collector's belongings such as cars, dolls, old advertisements, appendices, magazines, sweets etc. When you pay extra fee, you can enjoy shooting and smart ball. There are sexual art museums in the neighborhood, but if you have children please come here

A lovely museum for those who grew up with Japanese music, comics and car lovers. I particularly liked the backgound music which were pops in the 80s. I was also surprised by the large collection of Japanese cars in the museum ! Visitors should note that there are quite a lot of staircases in the museum making it not accessible for people with walking difficulties!

The Ikaho Toy, Doll and Car Museum has all this and more, there is so much to see that at times it can overwhelm you but if you take your time you will be well rewarded, being Auto enthusiasts we where delighted to see some rather rae Japanese sports cars on display.
The Japanese Pop Culture display was amazing, with Bubble Gum cards featuring famous wrestlers and sports stars, fan photos of movie/tv, stars and pop idols, it was interesting to see how closely Japanese and western culture followed each other, there are also arcade games and a wonderful machine that runs all day making Plastic Kewpie Dolls which are free to take with you, they have a small cafe to help you keep your energy levels up while taking in the experience.

Highly recommended for those headed to Mount Haruna to make a stop here first before setting food in sacred Initial D grounds.

This museum houses an immense collection of classic and modern Japanese memorabilia, from AJPW promotion posters to vinyls to cars and dolls. There is even a Ferrari F40 within the place!

Highlight for me was the Initial D exhibit with the tofu store front and absolutely mint AE86 and FD3S cars sitting inside. Also a lot of post-war Japanese and European cars on feature as well, including a Toyota 2000GT, a genuine Hakosuka GT-R and a Kenmeri GT-R.

For the youngsters, a gifts store at the end has a great number of snacks, goodies and toys to shop for.

On a cold day in Tasaki, it's an adventure taking the train to Shibukawa and getting the bus from No.4 stop. We took the 1.20pm bus and came back on the 4.45pm (last bus) after lunching at the large restaurant across the road.
The bus ride is about 25 minutes (end destination Ikaho Onsen)and you get off a cute little covered bus stop with a single iron bench. More cuteness at the Museum entrance where two giant teddy bears sit in a garish car. More teddy bears inside with photos and names of makers.
But what 's really nostalgic are the items from the 60s and 70s, wind-up gramophones, pagers, dial phones, Aniki Jin in his youth, old movie posters like Gone with the Wind and Roman Holiday especially along the Route 66 path, Bruce Willis with dark hair, Farrah Fawcett!
We painted the Kewpie dolls given at the entrance and saw the many imaginative creations done by others. Dolls from other countries and Edo era dolls too. Very dusty though along the corridors.
There's also a back garden with a squirrel in a cage and teddy bears sitting on the wall, bells to ring as you go along, quaint toilets and a gift shop besides the vintage cars and Minis from my teenage days.
Many visitors in the afternoon.

After looking around on the internet for car museums in Tokyo I came across the listings for Ikaho, The toys and dolls are not really my thing but some items did catch my attention on passing , but the cars were well worth the trip and overnight stay away from Tokyo, the displays - especially the Kei cars) had informative details in English too, and all seemed very well cared for, strange to see so many UK Minis in one place so far from home, well worth the entrance money and very helpful staff
