Yamanashi had many crystal mines in the past. Even today, much jewelry is produced here using polishing and processing techniques handed down over the generations. Our museum opened in 1975 to showcase Yamanashi's jewelry industry and to teach a wide audience all about gems.

it's small, but very very nice, there's a small shopping room with reasonable prices after the showing room. there're so many types of gems. and some are so big. my mother loved it so much.

The shop is open to all but the museum charges you an entry fee like all other places of attraction here. The layout is nice and interesting. But the gem museum at Pattaya, Thailand is a wonderful experience.

Conveniently located along the Retro and Omni bus routes, this museum exhibits a wide array of gems and crystals in a small space. Well appointed and displayed from its rough stages to polished jewelry, if you love gems, then a visit here will satiate you.

This was a small museum but an awesome and well presented showcase of precious and semi-precious gemstones. They have cut, uncut, and raw examples of a wide variety of gemstones (English labels). There are also a few fantastic amethyst and crystal quartz clusters on display....More

A museum dedicated to the various minerals and precious stones found the Yamanashi area. It's none interactive, and only worth a visit if you like gems or into geology. Otherwise you'd be bored silly.
