This is a small museum with an impressively large and diverse coin collection. Descriptions are in Japanese but there are many English labels. It's about a 10 minute walk from the tourist bus stop. Probably not worth the visit unless you have an interest in coins. The small wood block print gallery is quite nice and includes English descriptions.

The museum outlines the history of Japanese currency, and it's interesting to see how the materials for and designs of money have evolved. English labels are sparse, but there is an informative 15 minute video that... More
