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.

We love the place. Look around and listen. Take photo shoot. Up to 3rd floor. Pick a souvenir with your favorite music Quite expensive though if ulike to buy. Although all products here are all unique. Kids will love it.

Other than the Otaru Chanel, I'd say the Music Box Museum is another must visit place. It does stimulate people to buy one even you are not a music box lover : P

The tourist trap products that sell in here is cheaper than another one that located opposed to LeTAO something. If you want to buy music box, here is the good one for shopping. Even you can find those in the airport all over Japan.

If u like cutesy music boxes, weird impractical picture frames, and generally impractical paperweights, THIS is the place to go. And if you are a courting couple, or newly-wed, you HAVE to go buy some mementoes here. It's a nice experience overall but prepare to jostle with pretty much every tourist on the island, all of whom congregate at this... More

This is our second visit to the shop, the kids certainly loved it hence the revisit. Last time we went in the late afternoon and this time at around lunchtime and the different is HUGE!

It was my second visit and once again I ran out of time. I could easily spend 3-4 hours at this place. If you like music boxes like I do, you'll love this place. If you are not really into music boxes you should still check out this place. No matter what style of music boxes you like, you'll find... More

Probably our fifth visit to this place over the years. Very high quality music boxes. If the particular box does not have the melody that you want, it is possible to have it customized and despatched to your home via EMS.
