I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The exhibits are informative and some are interactive. The museum shop has a range of worthy buys that are reasonably priced and easy to carry such as the drip coffee pack or coffee waffle biscuits. As shared by some, one...More

The information displayed were in Japanese. However, you can connect to the wifi and hear the audio in English but it’s a chore if you do not have earphones on you. The museum is generally clean and crowd is mostly Japanese. There are coffee tasting...More

There wasn't much information here that isn't common knowledge for coffee brewing. There is good info on the origins and early development. There is a good audio tour that is easily opened on a personal device with access to the internet. Scan the QR code...More

Went there due to show up in Trip Advisor. As a coffee lover, it really worth to go there and see the history, culture and play with a quiz. It is worth entering the quiz as you will be printed with a photo museum card...More

This is a rather small but interesting museum with good theme. Also, you can have some freshly brewed coffee (don't expect too much anyway). There's nothing much to do around here, so it's not a bad idea to pay a visit to this museum.

The museum was disappointing, but if you do bother to go, make sure to ask for the audio tour if you don't speak Japanese. None of the signs were in English or other languages and they didn't offer the audio tour until I asked. Also,...More
