I went here because my friend wanted to go. However I ended up falling in love with this place and came back with 2 music boxes. I hope I get a chance to go here again some day again.

I keep on coming here everytime I travel to Otaru, which is 4 times by now. It's great to walk through both floors gazing at different types of music boxes and glass art on the second floor as well. And it's right next to the steam clock, Le Tao chocolate cafe and Romantic street. I mean, you can't pass it if walking around. Still have the very first music box (merry-go-round) I got there 15 years ago.

Otaru is home to a brilliant museum that never fail to dazzle visitors. Comprehensively housing over 25,000 music boxes dating as far back to the 19th century, the museum continues to draw crowds from all over the world. Oh, and forget to check out the roof space where you may design your own music box, with options including music played and external design. Loads to see and do, and thanks to the vast variety of music boxes, it makes for a brilliant day out. Then of course, there is the building’s 1912 architecture too – Otaru Music Box Museum is definitely worth a visit. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Its a big place and there are lots of musical boxes + antiques musical boxes. Upon leaving the building, i found a brochure which mentioned " DIY your own music box" I enquire from the staff and they directed me to a DIY musical shop just around the corner, opposite the hello kitty cafe to design. Make your own musical boxes to bring home, you will not regret. It was an awesome experience and the best souvenir to bring home for me. Be sure to give yourself at least 2 hours to pick and pay first then design, glue and dry the artwork. The 1 and only musical box in the world ( your own design). There is tax free for costs more than 5400 yen. After everything is glued, you will need to allow it to dry for 30mins. The shop will help you to wrap it into boxes. It is a true experience in Otaru.

Nice and interesting, I would imagine swiss, where most of the big antiques actually came from, to be even better
