Enchanting, stay for the concert
Nov 2016 • Couples
Loved this place. Apparently the owner of the factory collected music boxes and automata. His collection is now on display in a museum and, best of all, there are regular "performances" throughout the day.

There were plenty of people around but only the two of us paid for the concert. Thirty minutes of sheer delight. A little on the background of music boxes and how automata are different, then demonstrations of about 10 of them in action. These things are old, delicate and infinitely fascinating. From simple music boxes to whole animated scenes, working on the same principles, that also play music. The lady in charge let us up close but has video camera set up to show inner workings when she has a bigger crowd. She doesn't speak English but not much explanation is needed, pure delight.

She says they have different programmes for the concerts each month, so a reurn visit is in order.

This was the highlight of our visit to Kurashiki. We lingered for quite a while afterwards, looking closely at each of the mechanisms.

A little store around the corner (not sure if they are connected) has a huge variety of music boxes for sale.
