About
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.

Gem museum and Mt. Fuji!
Apr 2019 • Couples
It’s worth visiting the museum if you are in the area. We were not planning to go, but there were many different kinds of small museums near lake Kawaguchi and they looked very cute so we decided to pick one and visit. It’s dark and mysterious inside. Different kinds of gems were all over in the small museum getting spotlights. If you love stones, this is a good place to enjoy and lean.

A variety of jewelry is sold in the store. When we were there, I saw a foreign person was negotiating with someone in the museum. I was impressed that buyers come to the place to buy gems!

My first time to visit a gem museum. I've been to a diamond museum in Israel but these gem museum in Fujikawaguchiko is something else. The museum has tons of information and display about different gems from Japan and around the world. They have items for sale at duty free prices. Don't miss the place when you're in the lake area.

The museum collects valuable gems from all over the world and exhibits a wide variety of gems from rough gemstones to jewelry. A wide variety of products from inexpensive accessories to fine jewelry are sold. After visiting , we had tea and snacks at the cafe while looking admirably at Lake Kamaguchi.

Wonderrful Gems up on the Mountains
Dec 2017
Located just a short stroll along the lake Kawaguchiko, you can visit the Gem Musuem and explore the varieties of stones available in the musuem. There is a cafe and Public toilets for those who are doing a walk along the lake making it so convenience.

We took the circular bus and stopped at Gem Museum during our visit to Kawaguchiko this Oct. but unluckily it was closed as we were too late to come. The museum was near to Oike Park and we learnt that there were many beautiful gems and crystals displayed inside the museum. Put it next time.

Beautiful!

It has lots of beautiful crystals and stones. Very informative and interesting facts about different types and names of crystals. Would definitely recommend a visit as it's along the route of the sightseeing bus or if you are just strolling along lake kawaguchiko. Very easy to find the place as well.

Came here on a whim as the sightseeing bus stopped me outside. Beautiful gems inside the museum and good things to buy in the shop.

Some of the gems in museum were the biggest I've ever seen! It was very calm and quiet in here which was nice.
