Otaru Music Box Museum is also the must see in Otaru, thousands of music boxes is displaying in the hall, which makes people dazzled! Generally, the price of small music box is around 1000 yen.
[The longest museum in Japan, the largest museum]
The longest-running museum in Japan, the largest museum in Otaru, is about 5 minutes walk from the South Otaru Station. Remember: It is not a small station, and the station is going further.
There is a steam clock at the entrance of the museum, which will be called on time. But the most attractive thing is the store's dazzling music box. This is probably the most and most beautiful music box I have ever seen.
There are angels, cats, crystal balls, and a music box with a glass shape, and the music is different. I really want to take them all home!

The Otaru Music Box Hall was built in the 45th year of Meiji and is one of the few old buildings in Hokkaido. There is a two-story steam clock at the door, made of bronze by famous Canadian watchmakers, and steam is sprinkled with wonderful music every 15 minutes. The interior of the
octave box is made of wood, and the thick floor is stepped on to make a squeaking sound, accompanied by a dark light, revealing a heavy sense of history. The beautiful melodies that come out of the music box are everywhere, which is really a romantic dream.
Standing on the 2nd floor, you can see the scene inside the entire exhibition hall. It is also very beautiful. If you go early in the morning, you can see that there is no one.
Converted from Hokkaido's office for rice and grain trade, Otaru Music Box Museum exudes a certain European feel. With outer walls comprised of meticulously arranged dark red bricks, and a beech wood interior, the old stairs, corridors, and railings of the hall complement each other beautifully. In addition to viewing the variety of music boxes inside, visitors can also head to the third floor and try their hand at making a music box themselves.
