The settlement is well design, and organized. The buildings and structures are well maintainted. The japanese garden needs maintaining. Video presentations are simple but adequate. The artifacts are well presented and the staffs need to improve their knowledge in history of the area.

There is a beautiful Japanese garden/park. Two museum buildings give an insight into Ayutthaya's importance at the time. In...More

This museum is mainly a collection of reading panels which are very heavy on historical detail about Japan-Thai relations, but which don't tell you much about the Japanese settlement itself. I didn't find it particularly informative. It's also quite out of the way, so I...More

However due to the lack of deep understanding and historical knowledge of the settlement,...More
