I was mesmerized by the range of musical boxes. They were many beautiful ones to choose from, ranging from simple to exquisite. I love this place. A must visit. You can spend the whole day there and not get bored. Worth a second visit!

Other than doing the music box shopping, you can get to learn and see so much more about the history and old versions of music boxes in the museum!

A very charming museum not to be missed. It us mesmerizing to stand outside the building and take it the ambience in the air with the music playing softly in the background. Not to be missed.

The third floor is where the serious music boxes are...the disc ones and the ones the size of your coffee table. Pay the 100 yen to listen to a demo.

I don't think you can. If yes, it must be very expensive, the melodies in the music box is quite simple, it contain with just 5-8 melodies, for more complicated music is unbelievable expensive.
