We managed to get a good view of the Mt Fuji which was our main focus. The music forest itself is very pretty but quite boring though maybe because we are not that into musical instruments. Pretty interesting stuff they have there though. It can get really cold in winter!

The various music boxes and the views in the museum are fantastic! This is not only a museum, but also a park. It's a great place to take pictures.

The collection of automatic music players includes pipe organs, automated violins, pianos and banjos, and two demonstrations of machines in the collection. We enjoyed the demonstration of the huge dance hall pipe organ in the first exhibition building, and the grand piano adapted to play Chopin's Nocturnes. Staff were knowledgeable and ready to answer questions. We visited on a rainy day, and there were complimentary umbrellas available to keep us dry as we walked from building to building. The buildings are similar to the Italianate buildings at Port Meirion in Wales. The shop has some very expensive music boxes and some more reasonably priced ones as well. The onsite restaurant seemed a little expensive to us, and the entrance fee was higher than we were used to paying at other attractions in Japan, but we are glad that we visited.
