A slightly rare museum exhibiting materials about one of Japan's famous children's folk tales, "Momotaro."
From an interactive experience corner for children to exhibits of old documents and historical artifacts from the Edo period, the museum is enjoyable for a wide range of ages. Seasonal events are also held. If you are lucky, the museum curator will give a wonderful performance with a "chikuwa whistle" made from an actual chikuwa (tube-shaped fish cake).
The Momotaro historical materials on display exhibit the various forms of Mototaro throughout the ages, such as Ukiyo-e drawings from 230 years ago, as well as toys and other objects from the Taisho, Showa, and other periods.
In addition, there is an interactive corner to play with karakuri optical illusions that stimulate the curiosity.
