This is a really nice museum with an excellent collection of Samurai period artifacts. The museum is very small but the items on display more than make up for it. Note that is really hard to find. It seems to be in an adjacent building...More

The samurai collection is a small museum but it is really excellent. As the name says it displays the weapons, armor and other artifacts of the samurai. There is ample explanatory information and interactive screens to get a better understanding. In the back is a...More

Great gallery! It's not huge, we read all the material and were there for about forty minutes. I would have never know about this museum if not for Tripadvisor! Exhibits would be interesting to all, but I think boys between 8 and 14 will find...More

Truth in advertising. This museum is solely focused on the culture of the Samuri. The exhibits are well done and the written history is detailed. The touchscreen monitors were not working on my visit but this fact didn't detract from the experience. FYI: The main...More

This museum was a tad hard to find, it's located inside a restaurant, so you have to go up the restaurant and it's located on the second floor. It's a small collection, probably took us less than 1/2 hour to tour the whole thing, but...More

A very interesting museum. The fact that it is free to visit makes it that much more enjoyable. It is in the second floor above a restaurant so finding it might talk some asking but it's worth the trouble. The museum is small but packed...More

This very under recognized museum is always on my list of places to send people. The collection is beautiful and world class. It is a peek into the life of Samurai and a jaw dropping look at true master craftsmanship. The museum is a little...More

We visited the museum on a Saturday afternoon. The collection was wonderful! My children (10 & 7) loved it as well. It took us about an hour to walk through, but truly I could have spent much more time here.

Small, manageable, and spectacular! I can't believe I've never gone before this. It should be much better known than it is. AND it's free!
