A little museum about Momotaro, the little boy from Japanese tales. This is mostly for kids, but as it's part of Japan, it was nice to see once. The staff was funny, asking you to try some of the activities and taking pictures of you doing it. This area is not crowded, not much tourist.

This is really a collection of anything related to the famous folktale, rather old, dusty but still somehow managing to stay open. Not worth the admission charge unless you want to support the local economy and the eccentric man who enthusiastically shows you a number of optical illusions, which bears no relation to Momotaro but is fun anyway.

This is a very peculiar museum in the Bikan Historical Quarter, paying homage to folklore sweetheart Momotarou. If you come here, it is assumed that you have some basic knowledge of the tale, because the Museum does not offer any explanation whatsoever. It basically houses someone’s collection of Momotarou toys and related items, sprinkled with random optical illusion exhibits.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. The story of Peach Boy was a favorite of my family growing up, and the museum does a wonderful job of making Peach Boy and his adventures come to life via multiple small, interactive exhibits. There are artifacts on the second floor , including a screen print, vintage copies of Peach Boy comics, a... More

This quaint little museum is, once you've found it, a triumph of love over glitz and glamour. You have to look carefully even when you are standing outside the front door as the only sign in English is small and not always displayed to its best advantage. Once inside you will get dragged back to your childhood.

We needed to get out of the rain so popped in to this very Japanese "museum". Others have said it is aimed at children, but there seemed to be plenty of people of all ages getting a good deal,of mirth out of it. I now have 2 treasured pictures of both my husband and our tour guide appearing (head only!)... More

In this museum you can view several Momotaro-themed visual illusions. We thought most were hilarious and great fun, but they were clearly aimed towards children. It's worth visiting if you have time to spare and want to see an edible flute.
