Nice place especially for flowers lovers, full of blooming and colorful roses. Good sorrounding area, easy to access (by bus infront of the station). But it is overpriced to my idea.

It's hard for me to rate this place actually. It rather left me confused. It is full of tour groups (certainly was when we entered at opening time), the buildings are rather kitsch (think a Disney-esque version of European style), and the gardens are neither...More

There were music boxes in everything in the shop - in keyrings, on hanging decorations, in cabinets. I had only known one type of music box so did not expect this! Everything was so beautiful and I also admired the really early versions of the...More

Kawaguchiko Music Forest Museum is not very large but has plenty of activities to keep you occupied. In the garden, you can view Mt Fuji, some flowers, and a flash tree. There are several buildings housing automated music boxes for display and sale. There are...More

Stunning collection of automatic music machines which are all so well maintained. Live demonstration joint with professional performances were very enjoyable as well as educational.

It’s a very cute museum to visit, locating near the lake, giving me the same feeling as when visiting Ishiya Chocolate Factory in Hokkaido. However, I prefer the Hokkaido one.

What an amazing find! Cute European-looking buildings, stunning flowers and gardens. A dance organ performance hosted by a man who serenaded us with opera as he took our group photo. A gift shop with a rabbit-warren of levels, with beautiful things, most musical, but also...More

The sand art performance is all it takes for me to recommend a visit to this place. Absolutely beautiful, brilliant music score to complement, a must see.

There’s nothing Japanese about what’s on show at this theme-park-cum-museum, yet it is quintessentially Japanese, in that you would not find anything this quirky anywhere else in the world. Impressive collection of ‘automatic musical machines’ from Europe that are at least 100 years old (including...More

There are several souvenir shops in the museums. I didn't see any DIY workshops for such but you should be able to buy one with your favourite songs.
