Kawaguchiko Music Forest Museum is not very large but has plenty of activities to keep you occupied. In the garden, you can view Mt Fuji, some flowers, and a flash tree. There are several buildings housing automated music boxes for display and sale. There are...More

It’s a very cute museum to visit, locating near the lake, giving me the same feeling as when visiting Ishiya Chocolate Factory in Hokkaido. However, I prefer the Hokkaido one.

What an amazing find! Cute European-looking buildings, stunning flowers and gardens. A dance organ performance hosted by a man who serenaded us with opera as he took our group photo. A gift shop with a rabbit-warren of levels, with beautiful things, most musical, but also...More

The sand art performance is all it takes for me to recommend a visit to this place. Absolutely beautiful, brilliant music score to complement, a must see.

There’s nothing Japanese about what’s on show at this theme-park-cum-museum, yet it is quintessentially Japanese, in that you would not find anything this quirky anywhere else in the world. Impressive collection of ‘automatic musical machines’ from Europe that are at least 100 years old (including...More

It amazes us how they have sourced, shipped the automatic instruments to kawaguchiko and maintained the instrument so well keeping it in performance state. We went for all the performances, the aria, the sandart with violin and piano and the instrument introduction. Loved the sandart...More

This place is about music boxes and automated music machines from a German Belgian early 1900 years in a Disneyworld environment. I think its is highly overrated to what I was expecting (like a musical forrest!). Some of the excitement I dont understood here. And...More

Small but educational, contains a stunning collection of automatic music machines with a decent show where they played a selection of them (English text on what the presenter was saying was simple but effective). Organ Hall was good, a variety of shows were scheduled throughout...More

Its set up mainly as a stop to fill the tour group schedules.It's small outdoor area with the only worthwhile offering possibly being the musicians that sometimes play there.We looked over the fence,got a general idea and walked away.

There are several souvenir shops in the museums. I didn't see any DIY workshops for such but you should be able to buy one with your favourite songs.
