This is the museum of dolls which are used in Awa Marionette Joruri theater.(This is a kind of Bunraku,Japanese traditional marionette) There are around 100 dolls are exhibited. One of the most interesting things of these dolls are expressions on their faces. Some of the dolls can change their expression on their face into very different one.(actually a face or a head itself is changed) The master, who makes dolls,explains and shows how to make a doll and how to manipulate it.It was very interesting. Although he doesn't speak English well, you can enjoy what he showes. Near this museum there is a theater, where you can see the performance of Awa marionette Joruri.Unfortunately I didin't see it because of the shortage of time. But I think it is good to visit both to understand better.
