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...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.
